Special Guest Kevin Rockwood, Skelter Labs (S. Korea)
Guest Kevin Rockwood from Skelter Labs in South Korea, a company working on several artificial intelligence based projects joins host Drew Ogryzek. After 8 years working in Cincinnati as a software developer, Rockwood and his wife decided to move to Korea.
Having not done any research into the job market for software developers in Korea, Rockwood says attending local tech meetups, like the Seoul Elixir meetup which he currently organizes, is an excellent way to meet people and connections, and even find meaningful employment.
Programs, such as the Korean government's Tech Incubator Program for Startups or TIPS, are helping the thriving Korean startup scene.
