19:30 〜 19:55 Brief Introduction to Taiwan’s Developer Status Yu-Cheng Chuang

Taiwan is an island country that has a close relationship with Japan. It is not only geographically close, but also culturally related to Japan.

It is not uncommon for Taiwanese people to live in Japan, as exchange student, as businessman, or like most of you, as a developer. Many Taiwanese developers have yearned for working abroad, and so they have practiced English and even train themselves to speak like an American, to prepared for living in western countries.

This talk is less like a technical talk, but more an introduction on Taiwan’s developer status. Why we have desire to work outside our country, and things you may don’t know beyond the cheap computer OEM manufacturers.


Yucheng is a web developer focusing on mostly Ruby on Rails and front-end JavaScript for 5+ years. He moved to Japan from Taiwan just two months ago and joined a Japanese non-IT sweet retail company BAKE. He has also worked at food delivery startup SpoonRocket (YC 2013), another story that he’ll share in his talk. You can find him on Twitter as @yorkxin.
