My name is Lyra Star Mist
I love to learn and share knowledge with others, hike, and spend time in nature. I have written several children's stories, a manual and articles on different subjects. My current project is to write a book on how to raise your pet for extended life. My service dog is 12 years old and still acts like he is 8.
May the fun begin.
Hi Lyra Star Mist!
Fun story! I feel the same about not being sure where I "am from". The more time goes by, the more I feel that belonging has more to do with what's inside than the geography.
Looking forward to learning and teaching with you!
Nice to meet you all. My name is Yura Arai.
I have been working as a mechanical engineer in Japan for 20 years.
I am working to stop the decrease in the working population due to Japan's declining birthrate and aging population. I would like to teach the skills needed to work in Japan (manners, Japanese language, communication, business skills, Excel, manufacturing, etc.) from the viewpoint of an active engineer so that people will be attracted to Japan and want to work in Japan.
I am new to creating courses, so I joined the community to improve my skills in creating courses while communicating with you all.
I am familiar with acoustics, having played drums, guitar, bass, piano, and singing when I was younger, and I am happy to be able to use my strengths as a microphone setter on Udemy!
Just out of curiosity could a person work as a developer/programmer in Japan without knowing Japanese? I mean would English be enough?
Of course learning Japanese sounds nice, just might take some time.
Good luck. Your course topics sound interesting.
I am glad of your curiosity.
Japanese is not always necessary to work in Japan. There are many developers and programmers in my office who do not speak any Japanese.
However, looking at the companies I have worked for, there are still very few Japanese who can speak English. Naturally, Japanese people who can speak English communicate with engineers from abroad, but if that Japanese person takes a day off or goes on a business trip, it makes it difficult for work to proceed smoothly.
It is better to be able to speak Japanese, even if it is not perfect.
We are simply very happy when we can talk in Japanese with our colleagues at work.
My names Ross and Im fro a place called Elgin in the North of Scotland.
I mainly teach techniques in Ableton live from beginner to advanced focusing on more creative ways to use the tools rather than the traditional style.
I joined the instructor community to connect and speak with like minded people who are on a mission to share their knowledge and help others climb the life ladder.
Fun fact - I love hillwalking in the Highlands with my Dog. Its a great way to reset the creative mind just being in nature and discovering whats on your doorstep. I also like kickboxing and go to the gym 4/5 times a week.
All the best

I am new here. My name is Abhi Duggal and I am a holistic health expert and certified yoga and meditation teacher. I am a new instructor on Udemy and just published my first sleep improvement course. My teachings are usually shared on my youtube channels "Meditate with Abhi" and "The School of Breath" and I am excited to try Udemy as a new platform. I am looking forward to connect with likeminded people on this community. Have a blessed day.
My name is James McGregor from Australia.
I have just joined Udemy as an instructor (although I have been a student for many years) with my first course published today. My teaching area is about combining Behavourial Science with Marketing and Communication skills to help people get better at solving important environmental and social challenges like climate change, poverty, waste etc.
Fun fact - I am actually an electrical engineer but started working with some of the top behavioural scientists in the world trying to figure out how to best get people to take action on things like climate change and this led to me creating an award winning TV show about sustainable homes. So these days I am also a part time TV producer!
Look forward to learning more about all of you and taking some of your courses.
