GNOME.Asia Committee: Growing GNOME Communities in Asia


The GNOME.Asia Committee was established in 2008 by a group of GNOME advocates living in Asia. The committee members organize the GNOME.Asia Summit every year in order to promote GNOME technology among different segments and grow GNOME communities in Asia. GNOME.Asia Summit is an annual conference for GNOME users and developers in Asia. The event focuses primarily on the GNOME desktop and other devices that use GNOME, and also covers GNOME-based applications and GNOME development platform tools. It brings together the GNOME community in Asia to provide a forum for users, developers, foundation leaders, governments and businesses to discuss both the present technologies and future developments.

The committee also manage different projects in order to contribute to the GNOME project especially in Asian countries. And every year, we strive to attract new members from different corner of Asia to establish local GNOME User Groups and join our committee.
