I suspect this announcement will be even less relevant than the Detroit-centric announcement for Penguicon 2011... but here goes. For three of you that are reading The Daily WTF in Japan, I'll be headed out your way to attend SODEC from May 11-13.

Although this will be my first trip to Japan, I can assure you that won't be that gaijin guy. I am, after all, an expert in international language (i.e., raising my voice and SPEEEAAAKING VEEERRRYY SLLOOWWLY). Either way, I'll be chronicling my journey on Twitter (@apapadimoulis), along with a near-endless amount of pointless banter.

If you're planning on attending SODEC (or will be in the Tokyo Big Sight area), I’d love to hear from you. We can grab a whiskey, sake, whatever – I'll even try to bring over a TDWTF mug for you.


SODEC is the Japan's largest exhibition featuring a variety of products for development, operation and maintenance of software. A great number of managers in information systems and software development department visit SODEC every year to conduct business discussions face to face with exhibitors
