Hi.

I'm responsible for technology for an investment management company with its main offices in Hong Kong and London.  We also have a small office in Shenzhen, and we're interested in becoming more involved in the Chinese open-source community, possibly via sponsoring projects for the summer, and I'd be very happy if some or most of those turned out to be in D.  (Our founder is a mainland Chinese national).

The investment business is different from the web community, and so we would have to select the projects quite carefully, and they would need, especially initially, to be of more direct business benefit than might sometimes be the case for other industries.

I know that there are some D users in China, notably Putao, and also a flourishing open-source community.  And I'd be interested in knowing if there might be sufficient interest to explore this idea, and where the best places to go might be.  I see there is this:

http://opencas.org/

And that there's a dlang.org.cn site, which seems to be in the fairly early stages.

Any suggestions, pointers, and expressions of interest welcomed.  Please email me directly if you prefer at laeeth at kaleidic dot io, or we could also speak at dconf in Berlin.

Thanks.


Laeeth.

I thought we had left behind nations and borders in the open-source community. - Sorry, I couldn't resist. ;)

Chinese language does present some natural boundary, and policy perhaps too.  We're already involved elsewhere in a small way, and will increase slowly over time.
