Whalley's LinuxMagic will be part of a mission to Asia to promote Canadian technology.
The mission is co-sponsored by the National Research Council of Canada and Monte Jade and will visit China, Korea, and Hong Kong.
LinuxMagic specializes in developing software to run on the Linux operation system. Company president and CEO Michael Peddemors said being chosen for the Asian trip will consolidate the firm's position as a leader in the Pacific Northwest.
With such a large market looking at Linux development, they are going to need strong partners in this region, Peddemors said.
Vancouver, Linux and LinuxMagic all stand to benefit.
