I was born in October, 1967 in
Tianjin, China. I have been working for 7 seven years since I
graduated from the university. I had always been an excellent
student during my study, and I have done well in my work. To
prove that I will be highly qualified for whatever challenges
me, I think the best way is to prove that I have been always achieving
During my study time, I was almost
always among the top 5% during my study, and I almost always worked
in the student's association. I enrolled in the famous Nankai
University in 1986, which is listed as one of the sixteen key
nationwide universities in China. I studied in the Computer and
System Science Department, which is definitely the top 5% of all
departments in the university. I still stayed among the tops during
my university time. And I have won the scholarship and have once
been a monitor during that time.
Am I an intelligent student?
No, nobody around me says so, on the contrary, they all say I
am diligent. Yes, whenever I achieved something a little better
than other people did, it was only resulted from my extraordinary
hard work. When we were about to graduate, I heard about a comment
that I think best described my university life -- A girl classmate
said: "I don't know him quiet well, what impresses me most
is his hurrying figure, every night, to the study room, carrying
his BIG school bag."
After graduation, I went to Tianjin
Jinke Electronic Corp. Limited (a Sino-Hongkong joint venture
company). This company had a very strong academic atmosphere:
he wanted to build everything out of his own hands. For example,
instead of buying a well-built disk operation system, he wanted
to build it entirely of his own, from the hardware circuit to
the software of low level disk interrupt, disk formatting and
even the OS. Although maybe it is not a good practice for a commercial
company to develop himself, it surely a very good way for a person
to develop himself. I had the opportunity to get and carry them
out all. By then, I started to enjoy the fruition of my hard study,
All above required a broad range of knowledge, yet rather sound
on every aspect. The more I achieved, the more I was confident
in myself, and the more I was ready for new challenges.
As a result of the above company
policy, we have to rely entirely on our own. Once I wrote an analysis
program for the assembly work we were doing. It helped us greatly.
Later I found a commercial software that did the same work as
mine, of course much easier to use. But I was proud that it lacked
a fundamental feature that make the assembly language portable:
analysis and automatically replace the displacement value to portable
"offset clause". Only after two years was the commercial
software able to handle it.
When I was porting the MS-DOS
to boot entirely from ROM, I knew there was a commercial company
who had done exactly what I was doing. This was really a very
tough task. I should thank my company of forcing me to face such
great difficulties and I am pleased that I survived gracefully.
Once, the company discussed the possibility to write C codes instead
of assembly language for ROM programming. It is the easiest job
if you have the right compiler, but impossible if you don't. After
I thought about it over and over for a couple of days, a clever
idea hit upon me and I solved it successfully thereafter.
Above are examples that show
my products can stand shoulder to shoulder with commercial ones.
Besides, I formed the habit of "think while doing" during
my student time, so I could almost always find better ways in
doing things, no matter in coding methods, debug methods, or in
hardware design, or in normal policy and procedures, even in household
Three years after my graduation,
I shifted to and founded the Image Technology Department. I was
promoted as vice technical director later. I organized a large
project on Hospital Case Management System. It is an entire new
world that I bumped into, with everything out of my knowledge.
I began with user requirements analysis and began to learn "hospital
case management". I went to different places and met different
people, Everyone seemed to have his own special view and requirements.
Fitting pieces and pieces of puzzle together, I put forward the
user requirements specification, project prospect and budget,
and system concept design. I managed the develop team efficiently
during system detail design time. After that, I took part in the
campaign of product presentation and acted as a key roll in the
user training. This project won the Technical Appraisal and Achievement
Appraisal both in Dalian and Tianjin in 1994.
I went to Fourth Shift Asia in
Jan, 1996. It is a wholly owned American software company on MRPII
business. This is yet another new world to me. The environment
and tasks are quite challenging. I quickly adopted myself to the
new-and-ever-changing world. Migrating the OS from DOS to Windows,
then to Windows for workgroup, then to Win95 & NT, Writing
codes in C++, VB and Access, I led a hectic and cheerful life
One of my key projects here is
the NetLink project -- getting different Fourth Shift database
synchronized through Internet. I team worked with other two colleagues,
but in charge of the kernel part. This is not a real distributed
database system, but it runs well with some clever policy and
procedures. What's significant, it lets each database to be publisher
and subscriber, whereas Microsoft SQL Server will only allow the
database to be either one, but only one. Now I am the technical
project manager of "China Companies" project, a www
home page project involving Windows NT, Internet Information Server,
HTML language, Microsoft SQL server, internet date query implementation...
This is yet, oh me goodness, another new world to me. I learned
as I worked, and gave the first satisfying result only in three
I really like the feeling of
facing new challenges; I really enjoy the life of opening new
worlds, using new tools... There would definitely be new challenges
in my future life, but they would never be obstacles to me. I
regard them as step stones that make me jump higher and higher...
