Community Buiding Efforts in China — 365 Days, 122 Events, 19600 Attendees

By , July 3, 2008 2:20 am

As the Senior Manager of Sun Developer Network in China, I run (most of) the developer outreach activities (along with several business units in Sun) in China. During FY08 (2007.07.01 — 2008.06.31) there were a total number of 122 technology outreach events of different scale happened in China, covering a total number of 19600 attendees. That’s to say, one event every 3 days, with an average number of 160 attendees.

This achievement was the combined effort of the Technology Outreach Group under Matt Thompson, the Sun China ERI University Program under Sin-Yaw Wang, and the GSS Open Community Team under James Bai. The Asian Globalization Center (AGC), the ISV-E team, and the Solaris Engineering team at Sun China ERI also contributed significantly to this milestone.

Below is a list of the events happened in FY08.
