Pinpoint Asia

It is with great pleasure that I introduce Pinpoint Asia as a new sponsor of Agile Hong Kong. A specialist IT recruitment firm, Pinpoint Asia recruits talented, experienced technologists for permanent and contract roles across the Financial Services, Technology, Legal, Logistics, Commerce and Government business sectors. Pinpoint Asia’s reach covers the Asia Pacific region including Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore, Shanghai, Beijing and Seoul.

I would like to thank Pinpoint Asia, in particular Andrew Lee the founding Managing Director for sponsoring Agile Hong Kong. It is because of the generous support of our sponsor offer that we are able to enjoy prizes and refreshments at each meeting.

 IntelliJIdea        Resharper

I’m very excited to announce JetBrains as a new sponsor of Agile Hong Kong. JetBrains are best known for their excellent commercial IDE products IntelliJ IDEA for Java and ReSharper for C#. They are also known for TeamCity, their Continuous Integration server and for dotTrace, a memory and performance profiler for .NET.

Both IntelliJ IDEA and ReSharper have built in support for some XP practices such as automated refactorings, test driven development and automated build scripts. They are also responsible for building other quality products which you can read about here.

JetBrains have generously offered support by including Agile Hong Kong in the JetBrains User Group Giveaway program. Included in this giveaway program are licenses for the following products:

  • IntelliJ IDEA Personal
  • ReSharper Personal
  • TeamCity Build Agent
  • dotTrace Personal

I would like to thank JetBrains for supporting Agile Hong Kong. Expect to see giveaways of licenses for these products at code jams and as a thank you to speakers.
