Such efforts go a long way.

The training Federico Mena Quintero's training sessions at Forum GNOME
in Brasil <> is a stellar example of regional
GNOME developer training. Sponsorship from Novell, Friends of GNOME and
others helped make the training and free distribution of GNOME 2 books
possible.  Local conferences and hackfests, such as those in Spain,
Australia and Bangalore also brought new developers to the platform.  

Ross has looked into doing this in Bangkok and I am talking to potential
local organizers for such training in China.
