I don't know if timing will allow me to catch scheduled meetings or not, but I hope to get together with people and spool up on current coding standards and techniques.
A complex people database tuned for use in Japan (normalizes JP addresses, bilingual UI, etc.). Highly relational and continually growing, used by several ministries/churches. But the code is old - I need advice on migrating to OOP/MVC.
There are no English-based tech users groups in Osaka where I live - that's why I sought yours. My social group is my church, but they don't program. ;)
I left a career in systems engineering and software development to go to Japan as a missionary, but now I do a lot of the same things for ministry, and have fun doing it!
Missionary in Japan who develops in PHP and hopes to meet others during frequent visits to family in Texarkana (Dallas is closest PHP UG, I think).
