Thanks a lot for Dennis Lee, HKCS CCSIG Chairperson, in inviting us to participate in the wonderful networking event on 30 Jun 2016. It was a good opportunity for me to meet with old and new friends as well as listening to the talk by Thomas Lee on Intercloud computing.

Hopefully, in the future, we can jointly organise events with HKCS together as well.
