Last week TopCoder's Yingying Wu hosted the company's first professional open house at Dalian Software Park, part of "the Silicon Valley of China."
First established in 1998, Dalian Software Park is convenient to a wide range of universities, research institutes, and both domestic and international firms. Dalian is one of China's 11 "National Software Industry Bases" and one of five "National Software Export Bases." Currently, more than 300 companies, including 32 Global 500 corporations, have offices in the park.
