Drupal in China, the how, who and why.
Platinum and gold sponsors
China is beginning to adopt Drupal and since its slated as the next “India” in terms of an outsourcing hub what does this mean for the Drupal world. Join this round table discussion on the state of Drupal in China. Who is using Drupal? What companies are there? How does Drupal fit into the country’s development? Why is Drupal in China important? What are the barriers to entry for a business or a developer?
Marketing and Business but also Community and Core. Drupal in China is as much about building a community as it is about business.
* Things will start off with introductions of some of the Drupal shops in China as well as an overview of the state of Drupal and OSS in China
* We’ll discuss the current community in China and how developers are connecting with each other to work on projects. The use of drupalchina.org, groups.drupal.org, IRC, etc.
* An overview of the translation work being done to help promote Drupal within China.
* The floor will always be open for questions and comments.
We hope to encourage discussion about the use of Drupal within China and bring to light some of the challenges and rewards when working with the country as many of the challenges faced in China are faced in other countries throughout the world. If you are interested in how China is using Drupal and who the players are and if China is right for you or your business attend and share your thoughts and opinions.
