6th Annual Tech Day at Hannan University: Tech Day Plus 2010

Tech Day has grown to be one of Osaka JALT's biggest and best events of the year, including a great dinner party afterward at one of the best Italian restaurants in Osaka. One of last year's participants recently commented, "I'm really looking forward to this year's Tech Day. [L]ast year's was seriously informative and the dinner fantastic... to tell you the truth, I learned more at last year's Tech Day then I did at CALL."
