I went to China for the first time in August (after 20 years of it being the one place I wanted to see more than any other). That was for a family holiday in Beijing. I had a fantastic time and was able to practice using Mandarin more than I ever have before.
Next week, I will be in both Shanghai and Dalian for business. I have several meetings lined up and I am very interested in seeing the up-and-comers in the software development market.
Shanghai is the fastest growing city in the world. Iâm really looking forward to seeing it. I suppose there will be a lot of construction in preparation for the World Expo next year.
Dalian is a place Iâve been wanting to see for the past few years as it has a vibrant software outsourcing market.
Iâm spending a lot of time this week preparing and am really looking forward to the trip.
