Darren Saunders: "Insights from my experiences in Japan and contemplation of what lies ahead"

Long-time Kansai resident and early KMUGer Darren Saunders will discuss his ex-pat odyssey and the continuing development of his technical and business dreams.

Darren’s self-intro:

"Since arriving here in 1991 (and meeting KMUG shortly after), I have tried to navigate a path forward. I still feel like a stranger in a strange land, taking tentative steps while trying to avoid the pitfalls. A long line of Macs and other Apple products have been my trusted companions throughout this journey. Recently, I started my own company focussing on software as a service, which has been another big learning experience. I hope you will be interested to hear about my latest endeavors."

Everyone welcome to this meeting: In addition to the old-timers, we're hoping to see many new faces and folks who haven't been around in ages.
