My name is Zhao Xiaojie (Rick). I’m a software engineer at Alauda, which is responsible for developing a CI/CD platform. I’m the leader of the Chinese Localization SIG and a press contact for Jenkins in China, too, where a large developer community exists invisible from the west! 

I am passionate about promoting the Jenkins community and have done so in several ways, such as running Jenkins official social media channels, encouraging people to contribute tech articles, giving speeches about Jenkins at related conferences, and maintaining the Chinese Jenkins website. 

I am also the author of several open source projects such as the Simplified Chinese Plugin, Jenkins CLI. And I have participated in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) twice as a mentor.

I’m a very active author and contributor in open source. I believe that CI/CD can speed business value shipping for all teams. Advocating CI/CD open source projects is an excellent way to help other teams and individuals adopt DevOps best practices. I enjoy giving public speeches or organizing meetups related to CI/CD. In my opinion, working with the CDF offers me a lot of opportunities to spread information about open source projects. The CDF ambassador program can help us to gather much more CI/CD fans.

You can find me on GitHub.
