    Frustration of IT industry in Hong Kong

    Not really, because Hong Kong is using One Country Two System, it is separated but China is still our country. The IT market is huge since there are too many people, but I guess they are not really well paid compare to Hong Kong.

    Replacement advices needed!

    I know lol. But I don't do a lot of rendering everyday. I just don't want the computer occupied. Do you get what i mean? And I thought about making it into a render farm but it seems adobe doesn't support network rendering

    Frustration of IT industry in Hong Kong

    We call ourselves IT Dog in Hong Kong, its self-deprecating that we do what people asked. Everyting in the office that is broken, the colleague will come for us. Seriously, I am IT guy not an electrician. We have to develop mobile app, maintain websites with super low budget and short period of time.

    Frustration of IT industry in Hong Kong

    Small companies in Hong Kong can’t even invest a little bit of money to backup their data to a cloud or to a NAS. This makes me hope there would be cyber attacks to give them a lesson.

    Frustration of IT industry in Hong Kong

    Apologize for the bad english. I meant if the companies wanted to lower their budget, they will dismiss the IT Department first. Few large companies had devastating incident like supermarket POS malfunction after they dismiss the IT department LOL.
  13. Hello guys! I have been watch linustechtips for a while and just joined this forum! I would like to share some of my thoughts about the place I live, Hong Kong. For some basic information, Hong Kong is a city of China that is a special administrative region, which means that Hong Kong is like a different country with sperates laws and society. In Hong Kong, IT is very important since every bit of data runs through computers and mobile phone. But somehow, people don’t seems to treasure us that much. Since IT is like a supporting industry that works behind the stage. If we did our job well, they won’t notice anything. But if something goes wrong, it’s our fault. And IT is not a “money-making” department, so most of thr companies like even large banks fire IT guys first for lowering the budget. I can understand why people do this, since rather keeping a 30 something years old employee with high salary, they fire him and hire 2 fresh graduate with the same amount of money. That’s why people would like to start IT company in Hong Kong than working for companies, but the rent and electriciy costs are way too high. So, I would like to ask for some opinions in Linus Community. Do you think you can relocate and leave the homeland that you love, just for starting up a company that may not work at last?
