China has a ton of developers and many open source communities. Yet we don't have very good reputation around the world. Actually we have a world-class Linux User Group in Shanghai. It was founded in 1997 and mailing list members reached 3000 in 2012. We have 5 events every month for SHLUG.

I'd love to share my experience in managing such a successful Linux User Group to international Linux communities and see how we can work together to build an open source ecosystem via both non-profit communities and commercial ways.

Last but not least, I'll introduce what open source communities have done and achieved in China in past 15 years.


Thomas Yao

Manager of Shanghai Linux User Group, earliest and biggest LUG in Asia. Founder of GitCafe, biggest open source project hosting service in China.
