2010 is a fruitful year in terms of knowledge for me. The time in HKU allow me learning many technologies such as Maven and iPhone Application development. And i have acquired some front end development experiences during the recent 3 months in Beansbox.

I feel that 2011 is an important year in my life… let’s see what i could do in the coming new year.

Eureka! Blog also made a good progress in 2010. There are altogether about 200,000 visits.
