Yan Fan and Kani Munidasa

This week on the pod we sit down with Yan Fan and Kani Munidasa, the founders of Code Chrysalis. Yan and Kani take us through their worldwide wanderings where they ‘flip the table’, quit their stable jobs, and ultimately land in SF where they meet each other and start plotting their new company: a coding bootcamp in Tokyo. Why Tokyo? Yan and Kani explain everything that’s fascinatingly wrong with software engineering in Japan – and how they’re going to fix it.

Also: while our notorious cheapo Greg is notoriously absent, Chris and Taryn swap stories about discussing climate change naked in a salt sauna and the magic of the Ruby Room open mic night in Shibuya.

Got something to share with the podcast team? We would love to hear from you! Drop us a line at podcast@tokyocheapo.com.
