Yesterday Shao-Ting and I
stopped by Hefei University of Technology to meet with some professors
and students about starting an OpenSolaris User Group. We also met with Wei Liu, Sun's Campus Ambassador at at the university. Really great day
hanging out with these guys. Shaoting and Wei talked about the OpenSolaris
distribution, and I talked about some ideas to start a user group.

A couple of days ago Chengzu Zhou (Ricky),
Edgar Liu, and I presented OpenSolaris to a group of graduate and
undergrad students at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC)
in Hefei, which is not too far from Shanghai. I understand that USTC is in the top 10 of Chinese universities, so it was a quite pleasure to speak there. We covered the new
features in the OpenSolaris distribution, the OpenSolaris Web Stack,
and the OpenSolaris community. It was great fun for three hours. The
questions from the students were excellent and their enthusiasm was
infectious. I'm continually impressed with how much Chinese students
are interested in connecting with the West.

I'll be in China next week for OpenSolaris activities in Hefei and Fuzhou -- user group meetings, gatherings with students and professors, and the ACM/ICPC coding contest at the University of Science & Technology. I have to remember to bring a jacket. The contest will be a bit on the formal side. Other than that, it should be pretty casual. I'm thrilled to be going back to see Chinese university students. Should be very cool. It's becoming my favorite activity on OpenSolaris. I'm also looking forward to seeing Shaoting, Chengzu Zhou, Edgar Liu, and Fang Li. These guys -- and many others -- are doing a great job building community in China.
Also in China: there will be new OpenSolaris User Groups soon. Shaoting recently sent a proposal to advocacy-discuss to connect two existing OSUGs in China to the main community on opensolaris.org. Today I set up those projects and updated the OSUG leaders grid. We are now at 78. Get infrastructure for your OSUG here.
