This is a question that I’ve been asked a lot considering that people ask if there is any duplication of overlap with compevo. Techrich is an extension and complement to compevo and allows possibilities for our clients.
Being incorporated and based in Hong Kong allows us to provide more leverage and advantages and fills any gap that compevo may not have been able to fulfill. In terms of data storage, security and connectivity Hong Kong cannot be beat. It has the best of nearly all worlds.
Why Hong Kong?
This is the next, natural question that follows. Hong Kong is economically, politically, and technically stable in terms of both IT infrastructure, ecosystem and most importantly its link to the outside world is fast and neutral. Hong Kong itself is still the internet gateway to China, being directly connected to Mainland China.
Hong Kong is also has a large Big Data industry and demand due its reputation as a financial hub of the world which is a perfect ecosystem and fit for Techrich’s goals.
Contrary to some common belief, Hong Kong is not in the Asian Ring of Fire and is relatively free of any natural disasters, making it not only an ideal location on a world scale but perfect within Asia too. Hong Kong does experience typhoons but they are rarely devastating and have little to no impact on IT or datacenter operations in Hong Kong. In fact Hong Kong’s power grid is known to be one of the most reliable and stable in the world.
In terms of internet routing Hong Kong is quite neutral with excellent connectivity to all of Asia, North America and Europe, but of particular importance is the capability of very low ping times into Mainland China that only Hong Kong can provide.
I believe teaching coding to kids in any form is a benefit for them regardless of their career path. It really exercises the brain and mind into solving problems in your mind and requires a lot of creativity. If they can learn coding at a young age it is likely they will continue to learn well in other areas for the rest of their life.
I don’t know if there is a magic number of when to start but if a child is able to use a computer to play games, they are probably capable of being introduced. I think it’s important to make it as a fun as possible and without too much pressure, which is obviously difficult at a younger age but part of getting them there is not just the coding, but if they start more advanced academics at a young age they are more likely to have the discipline to think things through.
A quick Google search makes it look like there is growing interest for kids and there are now platforms and services intended to help.
Another great thing about kids learning to code is that for children in impoverished areas of the world, who may have access to a computer can be on a level playing field. In IT you work from almost anywhere in the world and your talent can be recognized.
