About Me: 

I am a senior front-end developer since 2006. I am 35, married for 9 years and father of two children. I work and live in Shanghai city more than 8 years.

Since 2008, I have grown more involved with the Drupal Community by attending camps, meetups, workshops, IRC, etc. I have been promoted Drupal in China for more than eight years. I co-author a book about Drupal 6 in Chinese, published in Taiwan with other two friends in August 2009 more info at http://drupalchina.cn/node/189.

I provide assistance to organizing other City Drupal meetups in China with other developers, like Beijing, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing and so on. I created the first online communication group about Drupal in China using QQ with 2000 members, I help answer questions almost everyday.

Board meeting attendence: 
none
Have you served on a board or committee?: 
No
If so, tell us about it.: 
n/a
What perspective will you bring to the board when discussing strategic topics?: 
Enhancing connections in the Asian Drupal community. Drupal is very popular in Europe and America, but in the Asian region, it also need to be further promoted. I hope Drupal Association pay more attention to these community. Strengthen communication with the leader of these contries or cities.
What existing board topics are you most passionate about? and why?: 
"Understanding what the Project needs to move forward and determine how the Association can help meet those needs through Drupal.org and DrupalCon." Drupal is an open source CMS, "move forward" needs all local Drupal community voice.
What additional strategic topics would you like to introduce?: 
Pay more attention on Non-English speaking countries market. The Drupal China community is isolated from the rest of the world and as a Community Leader in China, I want to build bridges between our local community and the Drupal Community around the world.
What unique skills would you bring to the board?: 
I have been running the un-official Drupal China community website: drupalchina.cn for about 8 years. Co-Organized some d.o. Documentations initiative in Chinese and other Drupal related blogs translations task.
How have your past contributions to Drupal prepared you for board candidacy?: 
I have organized a lot of Drupal meetups in Shanghai, and helped organize meetups in Beijing, Guangzhou, Chongqing,etc. And I have organized some translation task of Drupal documentation from English to Chinese.
Why should we vote for you?: 
As a developer and Chinese local Drupal meetup organizer, I have full of experience for better communicate with site builder, developer, project manager and other different kinds of people.

If any from China would be the right one for this postion, I would say Jackie Niu is the one. I know Drupal through this man, and I believe he "sacrified" lots of time to many novices like me, he is truely a embassadar of Drupal and open source, and a pillar for Chinese Drupal communiy.

Jack is the most diligent community activities convenor in China. He contributes many to Drupal localization and promotion in China. I think he deserves the candidate of the Association Board of Directors.

Jack is the truely community leader in big China, although he lives in Shanghai, Drupallers in other Chinese cities all know about him.

He is also an experienced developer with many contributions on documents, translations etc. He runs an online drupal group under QQ with more than 1000 active members, which drupallers exchange experience and seek help inside.

For a long time, Drupal Association doesn't really know Chinese coummunity, I think he is the right person to bridge China and the World.

Hope he will become one of the directors, then he will has more infusive, which can also help drupal become more popular in China. I support him and wish he will be that lucky man. Thx.

I've had the pleasure of working with Jack a few years ago while consulting in Shanghai. Immensely respectful in our daily interactions, Jack was (and still is) clearly a leading figure, both to his team and to the local Drupal community.

The Chinese Drupal community is quite big and impressive, but has sadly remained isolated from the larger global Drupal community for various reasons.

I'm very happy Jack is reaching out to bridge both communities and hope he gets a chance to show the rest of us what the Chinese community has to offer.

The biggest hinder for Drupal in China is language. I think Jack niu is one of the good sermonizer in China. He created the biggest Drupal community in China and helped a lots of people who like me keep forward to study Drupal as we can.
