  16. Japanese English • Less opportunities in daily life, poor curriculum

    / teaching at school • Generically even software developers are not good at English communication • A sign: Recently an increasing number of companies have chosen English as the official language ౡࠃͷಛੑɾڭҭͷ໰୊Ͱ։ൃऀ΋ྫ֎Ͱ͸͋Γ·ͤΜ͕ɺ ӳޠΛެ༻Խ͢Δ೔ܥاۀ͸ۙ೥૿͖͍͑ͯͯ·͢ɻ

  26. Code! Code! Code! • Write some code first, something rather

    than nothing • Beginning new project / shaping new idea is always exciting • Even if your each PR is trivial, it can move OSS project forward ԿΛࠩ͠ஔ͍ͯ΋ͱʹ͔͘ίʔυΛॻ͘͜ͱ͕ୈҰɺࣗ෼ Ͱ৽࢝͘͠Ίͯ΋ɺখ͞ͳύονͰ΋ߏ͍·ͤΜɻ
  27. No Lang Barrier • Japanese Scala developers’ community is so

    active (especially in Tokyo) • Working only there ironically toughens the language barrier • We should intentionally focus on world- wide activities more than ever ೔ຊޠݍ͚ͩͰ׆ಈͯ͠͸͍͚·ͤΜɻݴޠͷนΛͭͬ͘ ͯ͠·͍·͢ɻ
  28. So Ninjas Should … • Write awesome Scala code first!

    • Attach English README to them • Blog in English • Publish slides in English • English! English! English! ૉ੖Β͍͠4DBMBίʔυΛॻ͘͜ͱ͕·ͣୈҰͰ͕͢ɺͦ ͷଘࡏΛӳޠͰൃ৴͢Δ͜ͱ΋ಉ͘͡Β͍େ੾Ͱ͠ΐ͏ɻ

  31. Projects I started up • Skinny Framework to build web

    apps • Skinny Micro to build micro web apps • ScalikeJDBC to talk to RDBMS • AWScala to access AWS on the REPL • bigquery4s to access BigQuery APIs 4DBMJLF+%#$ɺ4LJOOZͳͲ͍͔ͭ͘044Λ্ཱͪ͛·͠ ͨɻ࢖ͬͯ͘ΕΔਓ΋૿͖͍͑ͯͯ·͢ɻ
  32. Projects I joined • Scalatra - Sinatra framework for Scala

    • json4s - Popular JSON AST library • Scalate - Veteran template engine • Small patches to several projects 4DBMBUSBɺKTPOTɺ4DBMBUF͸ϝϯςφͷҰਓͱͯ͠ඍྗ ͳΒϓϩδΣΫτʹߩݙΛଓ͚͍ͯ·͢ɻ
  33. Go Abroad • Hopefully my works are known at least

    by GH stargazers, but I myself am still unknown outside of Japan • Giving a presentation at world-wide conference (e.g. ScalaDays) ͨͩɺ΋ͬͱւ֎Ͱೝ஌͞ΕΔඞཁੑΛײ͍ͯ͡·͢ɻੈ քతΧϯϑΝϨϯεͰͷొஃͳͲ΋໨ࢦ͠·͢ɻ

    ScalikeJDBC • I believe they’re already nice enough. Please give it a try! ͦΕ͸ࣗ෼ͷ044Λ΋ͬͱଟ͘ͷਓʹ࢖ͬͯ΋Β͏ͨ Ίɻ݁ߏྑ͍ͱࢥ͍ͬͯΔͷͰͥͻࢼͯ͠Έ͍ͯͩ͘͞ɻ
  35. In Summary ·ͱΊͰ͢ɻ

  36. • Scala is already very popular in Japan • Developers

    in Japan tend to be bad at English communication • Even so, there is no helpless reason not to be open to the world • I myself would like to keep working on Scala OSS more than ever! ೔ຊͷ4DBMBਓؾɺӳޠͷ໰୊ɺੈքʹΦʔϓϯʹͳΔ্ Ͱͷোนɺࢲࣗ਎ͷνϟϨϯδʹ͍ͭͯ࿩͠·ͨ͠ɻ
