digitalmars.D - D in China?

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.
