Open source have been a global phenomenon for a long time. From the US to Europe to Africa, it has changed the lives of millions of users & contributors. Yet many are still unaware of the local flavor and cultural differences open-source communities can exhibit in different countries. This is especially problematic as open-source projects now routinely span multiple nations and ethnies. In this talk, two experienced open-source participants, an evangelist and a developer, will share some of their insights of how East Asian open-source communities in China, Japan and Korea, can differ from their western counterparts.
Join us if you are interested in learning more about how very large projects such as Ruby got their start in East Asia, or how very large developer communities such as China approach open-source in ways that may surprise you!
