mulesoft developer meetups

Are you curious about how Anypoint Platform works? Do you want to know what API-led connectivity is? Do you want to take advantage of the recent Anypoint Platform Nov ‘17 release or the Mule 4 release candidate?

Then ask a practitioner with hands-on experience in-person! Our global MuleSoft Developer Meetup program is designed to bring together all practitioners to exchange ideas–– from developers and architects to anyone who wants to build APIs and integrations. The program has grown exponentially since its launch in June, and we’ve seen – in the past month only – an average of 3 Meetups a week all around the globe!

As the end of the year approaches, our leaders are organizing more Meetups, and they are eager to meet with their local communities to share the new features of the Anypoint Platform Nov ‘17  release, Mule 4 and Studio 7 release candidates. Here’s a roundup of past MuleSoft Developer Meetups and what’s to come in the MuleSoft community until the end of the year.

Meetup highlights from the past month
