I came to find ThoughtWorks by
Recommendation. Hao XU, the head of technology in China happened to read my blog and then recommended me.
My geeky passion is
Create a simple mobile game for my son.
The best advice I can give a current or future ThoughtWorker is
Make a clear self-improvement plan, action on it and review it monthly.
The thing I'm most proud of from my time here is
Working with some really good people who can be life-long friends, not just colleagues.
One of the most interesting stories I recall from my time at ThoughtWorks was when
I was working in a UK project and the 10 teammates were from 8 different countries / cultures.
The most interesting thing I've learned on the job is
The skills of understanding customer needs and communication with customers, can also be applied to everyday life.
The thing I love most about my work is
Helping people identify their real priorities.
If I could fix one of the world's problems, I'd put my powers to use on behalf of
the Chinese villagers to stop the over industrialization in China.
With ThoughtWorks, I've visited
Xian, Beijing, Bangalore, London, Los Angelos, Brisbane, Sydney, Chengdu.
