    Ben Crox, organiser of Barcamp HK and the Chief of Startup Commune, fonds on developing application with javascript, especially as a middleware.

    Ben graduates from Automation engineering in CUHK and interested in processing signal bit by bit. In the pass ten years, Ben develops middleware to use telephone systems to control and report things which are realtime and tangible even to the elder generation. From Dialup BBS to phone based massive human resource management.
