the kde asia track was amazing this week. i had the pleasure and honour to meet with people from korea, cambodia, china and india who are working with and on kde. this included our kde india spearhead (who gave me a cool kde india t-shirt... thanks pradeepto!), korean community developers working on 3d applications and people from red flag and asianux.
as an interesting example red flag linux employs 30+ desktop software developers. they have a huge number of patches that have yet to be pushed upstream and it's a real investment/liability issue for them. so we'll be working much closer with them on syncing development where it makes sense. given their large deployment numbers, the potential market in their region and the amount of investment they are making in development, this is a very exciting opportunity.
one of the other outcomes is the new kde-asia mailing list, the start of planning for an asian kde event and some additional communications and marketing support such as a boothbox for asian events and sponsorship outreach.
this peek into the efforts happening in asia was truly eye opening. helped me realize that world domination is one step closer than i was aware of. =)
