in Tokyo. And I believe it also gave the Japan chapter an exciting and
well deserved further energy boost. To some degrees AppSecs can be
virtuous cycles. :-)

Sadly, for 2015, we will not have an AppSec in Asia and I plan to have
an Asia tour again in Q4 2015. Though we definitely need volunteers and
speakers to help with that.
