I am a French PHP developer and I have been working for almost 6 years as a Symfony developer. I am obviously interested in finding a job in Tokyo but from what I could read on your blog or on the net, it looks like Japanese people are not really fond of PHP. On top of this, I can’t speak Japanese.
I have been looking for opportunities from home on internet but I am kind of desperate to find anything. So, my questions are:
- do you think I have a good (real) chance to find a decent PHP developer job
if I come in Tokyo directly with a working holiday visa and go to conferences to find contacts ?
- since Symfony 1 was a lot inspired by RoR, would it be possible to start off as a junior/intermerdiate RoR dev ?
- or should I just take Japanese lessons and work with RoR for 1 year at home, and try coming next year ?
Thanks for the replies, guys. And sorry if my questions sound a bit dumb.
Have a nice day!
