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

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.
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.
