We recently launched a new MuleSoft Meetup program and, in the two months since, we have had over 25 Meetups in 9 countries-–bringing people together to explore, teach, and learn about API-led connectivity!
Check out some of the highlights from August and see what future Meetups in September and October have in store!
Meetup highlights from August
August has been a busy month for our Meetup leaders, cities including Atlanta, NYC, Boston, and London all held Meetups. We are also excited to have São Paulo, Christchurch, Melbourne, and Perth hold their very first Meetups in September! Here are some highlights for past Meetups:
San Paulo Meetup leader Anupam Gogoi did an incredible job organizing the first ever Meetup in Brazil. He kicked off the group with a discussion on API-Led Connectivity, and then followed up with presentations about Event Architecture, File Upload Strategy, and Mule 4 Beta. Want to find out more?

Meanwhile, in Christchurch, Kian Ting led the first Meetup in New Zealand. The event started with a quick overview of developer resources, such as MuleSoft’s training and certifications, as well as an overview of how developers can use the Champions program as a knowledge resource.
The technical portion of the Meetup discussed MUnit––a flexible tool for unit, service, and end-to-end testing.
In Perth, Zubair Aslam held the first Meetup for the region. The event kicked off with a light-hearted brainstorming session on future topics ideas, and concluded with an introduction to Anypoint Platform, and a quick overview of designing, developing, running, and managing the RESTful APIs.
