There are very few Chinese users in the Atlassian community. I regret that I have no plans to attend this summit and I can't take photos with my community partners, but I can tell you how the community uses Chinese to express it.

“社区”

Well, as the Leader / Founder of the newly instated AUG Rotterdam, I can only advise you to start it up yourself if you are motivated enough.

I've been doing it for 3 months now and it is soooo much fun and all the other AUG Leaders and Community Managers help out big time, so you're never alone!!

Here is @Ollie Guan and myself performing a flawless completion of this challenge (with just the minor issue of us not actually being at Summit. LOLz) 
Hopefully one day, we'll do it for real and at a Summit!

(By the way... the online AUG map really is awesome!)

I prepared ahead of time to be asked this question and I even invited people to the techTime booth to learn the Maori (New Zealand) word for community - but also this preparation was not needed.

So with all great information, I'll share it here in the Atlassian Community online.

The word 'community' in te reo Maori is "hapori" (noun) section of a kinship group, family, society, community.

People are an important part of the Maori culture as indicated by this often (in New Zealand) used phrase:

"He aha te mea nui o te ao. He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata"

"What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people."

Hmm the only thing I can think of that would epitomize community in PEI is: A cèilidh (Scottish Gaelic pronunciation: [ˈkʲʰeːlɪ]) or céilí (Irish pronunciation: [ˈceːlʲiː]) is a traditional Scottish or Irish social gathering. In its most basic form, it simply means a social visit. In contemporary usage, it usually involves dancing and playing Gaelic folk music, either at a house party or a larger concert at a social hall or other community gathering place.

Haha, as a non-english-native-speaker, it is quite easy to meet an English native speaker there.

But I'm sure, that would not conform to the rules above...
