“China is a global leader in large-scale infrastructure, and now we're seeing that translate into open source contribution and leadership, with more OpenStack developers than almost any other country," said Mark Collier, COO of the OpenStack Foundation. "With more industries in more countries relying on open source software like OpenStack, the opportunity to invite our global community of 100,000 people from over 180 countries to join in designing the future of open infrastructure has never been more vital."
