My Way to "try! Swift Tokyo 2017" #swiftlang

try! Swift Tokyo 2017 will take place in Japan with talks on March 2nd and 3rd, and a Swift hackathon on March 4th.
This is my first time to join the organizers of try! Swift.

try! Swift is turning point in my career. So, I look back on this year.

1. try! Swift

The first try! Swift was held in Tokyo between March 2nd and 4th, 2016. 
I attended it as an audience. At that time, I didn’t know any developers in Tokyo because I live in Kobe. Since then our relationship grew.

2. Contribution to Swift Community

After try! Swift, I tried to contribute to open-source Swift Package Manager and so on. While I tackled them, I could communicate with worldwide developers on GitHub.

3. Tokyo iOS Meetup

This is my first English presentation. The reason why I tried it was I had an opportunity to talk in US. It’s mentioned later.

4. iOSDevCampDC

This July, I went to Washington, D.C. to see Natasha (NatashaTheRobot) and other developers in US.
Everything - the organizers, speakers, other developers, foods - was great.

5. try! Swift NYC

I’ve got a lot of experiences after try! Swift, so I went to try! Swift NYC this September.
I was just an audience, but took the stage to assist magic show. Even now, I don’t know the trick.

6. Brooklyn Swift Developers

This is my first time to talk in other countries.
I had never been overseas, but I accepted it at once. I thought there was no reason not to do that.
It was a great experience. I’d like to go back again someday.

Finally

As mentioned above, try! Swift is turning point in my career. It’s great to contribute to a worldwide Swift community.
Also it’s fun to know a difference culture. I'd like to go overseas several times a year.


I’m looking forward to seeing you in Tokyo.
If you have an interest in sweet stuff around Japan, feel free to contact with me.

Thank you,
Satoshi
