It becomes Karekore 12 years engaged in the work of software development. About 6 years in Japan, two years at home (half neat w), 4 years in Canada.
Or it would place such as a matter of fact one year since three years out of Canada four years of Japanese companies. You may variety it was found in that one year.
First, most of the difference is the character code. The Japanese code JIS / SHIFT-JIS / EUC, it is not a Japanese code include UTF-8 / UTF-16 that can be used is Japanese, you should explicitly processes these when developing the software . Recently, I've become much easier thanks to the UTF-8, a long time ago it had been bothering a well head in the encoding per JIS / SHIFT-JIS / EUC.
Further, for example when it is desired to use the latest version such as open source software, unless shall not (or themselves must correspond) or until the corresponding order does not correspond to the Japanese that had many etc.
However, because it is good to not at all, such as worry of character code in here, it is very easy. The latest version also you can use immediately as it is in the software.
Skill level of software developers, I'm think the upper at all more of Japan. Enough to be allowed to surprise every time I see the code written by Koch of programmers, or coding is referred to as the poor, really did you receive a specialized education? This person is often in here I (in and then you or to software majors actually only such a person in the Toka UBC and BCIT w. W or doing manager in the company of a certain mobile phone giant). Dattari Chinese or person was Indian I occasionally amazing Na. I also have people that you can really be in the course, it is everywhere it is the same. This is the overall level of talk.
But Japan has not had the dominant position in the software, I now think issues that kana with recent this language. Etc. For example, in appliances and cars, while there is a SONY · Panasonic and Toyota · Honda and global big names, it is nothing in the software. Someday to overcome the threshold of the language, from Japan de facto standard specific software we hope that is born.
