A brief introduction about this project

I spent a lot of time on this projet ever since 2008 when I was just a college student. At very first I tried to get some data and do some very simple calculation on SqlServer. Then I started working on Adobe Flex, with Flex I got some very beautiful UI components, but very low efficieny for calculation and rendering. Then I tried to use C# to fetch data and ASP.net for displaying, not bad, but still not good enough. Finally as my computer techonology becomes more and more mature, I had a very good solution by using AngluarJS, nodeJS and mongo, and that's it, as you see right now.

I'm a hard working man. It was not easy to work on this project on those unaccountable nights after leaving office, especailly I was so young at that time. The progress on this project was really slow untill I finally decided to work for my dream not for bosses any more. Based on the very good infrastructure in those slow times, I spent almost 3 months on this project with fulltime. Though there are still lots of features to be added, I think it's good enough to be on production now.

As you can see from the web address, this project is for those rational persons who want to use data to do rational decisons.

I get lots of people and someone that I never met before to thanks.

I'd like to thank my mother and wife at first, thanks for their understanding for my strong personality and lazy habit on life. I even never got a present for them on any festivals or birthday. Thanks for my wife's cooking everyday and their encourage for this project. I owed them a lot.

I also would like thanks one of my old friend, @Tong. I talked to her about this project when I was young boy, but it finally comes to production when I'm so close to 30 years old. There were quite lots of times she asked me about the progress of this project, and I got lots of excuses for the slow progress. I just cannot forget those promises and finally made the decision to live on my style. Now, I'm very exciting to show this page to her in a near future.

Finally, I'd like to thanks all those friends who played with me, grew with me and dreaming with me. Thanks for your trust on me, thanks for your accompany.

Thanks for those people that I never met for their contribution on open source projects

Without their contribution to open source projects, I would never have finished those features that I desired to have long ago. I really appeciate you guys even though I don't know your names. Thanks!
