I learned yesterday there is a thriving ruby community in China, https://ruby-china.org
- they have their own rubyconf http://rubyconfchina.org
-- and rubygems. Interesting that the seem content to live in own space, i.e. I've never heard of it until now, and it seems all the speakers at their RubyConf are doing it in Chinese, which contrasts greatly w/pretty much every other non US Rubyconf, i.e. very often there are English presentations, often by Rubyists of some note. That being said, this might be a fertile ground to spread opal because it seems like they're into Ruby for practicality reasons primarily (i.e free and quick development of certain kinds of applications, primarily web) , and I think Opal presents a strong value proposition there. That being said, I know zero Chinese jargon for software development. On the otherhand @zetachang
would probably be comfortable there, though the simplified Chinese might throw him a bit. Food for thought.
