Should I give up or should I keep chasing pavements?

I really don’t know why the lyrics of the song “Chasing Pavements” sung by Adele playing again and again in my mind when I started to write 3S Newsletter in Quarter I of 2017. Maybe song is not just a song, song can tell us an untold story.

We all know that IT field is so attractive but ruthless. People come then leave, so quickly that sometimes we don’t have enough time to remember them even their names. Some people, they came, they stayed, they devoted; they seemed to be our essential part, but they leave. They hurt and we hurt. This situation occurs in almost IT companies, and our 3S is not an acceptance.

Nevertheless there is still have so many people who love 3S really simply and truly. They stay still and try their best days by days to make 3S great. Let’s see what they did in the 1st quarter of this year.

On Jan 14, 3S administration department hold a very wonderful Sum-up picnic for all 3S members at a resort named Trang Vien Dong Goi – Xuan Mai – Hoa Binh (around 40 km from Hanoi). An informative meeting was held right after reaching at the resort. 3S members was informed about the business result of the year 2016 and the plan of 2017. At the meeting, BOD also rewarded best members of the year. Besides, the picnic had so many interesting games and activities both in door and outside such as: Tug of war, swimming, running. Last of the picnic, we enjoyed a party with delicious and fresh foods, and the auction of PI-PO was held successfully over expectation. Mr. Chairman – Nghia Tran became the winner when bought PI-PO with 16,000,000 VND then he asked 3S Youth to break the 2 PI-PO, counted the money inside and it is 16,018,000 VND, then he gave all that money for 3S Youth as a gift.



The future is now and the future needs life - long learning. With the commitment to create a Life Long Learning Culture in every company he participated, Mr. Chairman – Nghia Tran hosted a talk show: Artificial Intelligence (A.I), Machine Learning (M.L) , Deep Learning (D.L) and our actions on C.I.A for 3S strategy in Feb 03rd.
