Company visit: Tencent QQ

If you don’t know QQ in China, you are the person in Mars. QQ is the most popular IM tool in China and has over 0.3 billion users.

We planed to add company visit in our road show. At first, we contacted an open source community ZEUUX (http://www.zeuux.org) to recommend a company. As one of his core team member, Zoom Quiet works for Kingsoft in Zhuhai, we added a trip to Zhuhai in our schedule. Just before the Sun Developer Day in Zhenzhen, we received a message from Zoom that there will be a two days power off  in his company and nobody will be in the office at the day we planed the company visit.

It seems we’d better cancel the company visit. I don’t want to give up, after all, I have interest to contact the group developers in specific companies.  I went over the name cards and registration sheet of Sun Developer Day in Shenzhen, and found developers from QQ.  During the dinner time, I asked Kevin Xu, if our team can visit his company – Tencent. Then, we finalized such a company visit.

Our visit is a very pleasure journey, not only because of we (Alex and me) don’t need to talk much as we did in other event, the Tencent developers introduced their business, infrastructure, and technology adoption. but also The developers in Tencent of the meeting belongs to 3G product team and responsible for the QQ in mobile and web portal which are just the technology topics our team wants to cover. We recommend our open sourced Java ME (http://phoneme.dev.sun.com) and Java EE (http://glassfish.dev.sun.com) projects, and they showed much interests as the project do have features that meets their requests.

One thing impressed me that the developers in Tencent said that they are encouraged to implement the infrastructures by themselves. One reason is the cost, the other reason is that they always met the stress problem, such as processing 10 thousands complicate requests per second, and some commercial  products may shut down under such conditions.  Hope they could benefit from Sun’s open sourced products.

Alex and me agreed that company visit is more interesting than just delivering a presentation in event.  As both of us benefit from such kind of conversation, and Alex and I got some QQ mascots. 🙂

You may see th QQ mascots in the table of the photo, and the Java develoers in Tencent, Capser, Iron, Meteor Chen, June Huang, Jarod  Ruan,  Albert Zhu  and Kevin Xu.
