Reading Time: 14 minutes

So far, March was our busiest month with 12 Meetups across all 5 continents, thus growing our in-person community events’ global footprint. Pune (India) and Caracas (Venezuela) kicked off their very first Meetups. We wish them many more to come!

With that said, April already looks like an even busier month. Just on April 19th, we are scheduled to have 4 Meetups happening! If you’re in Sydney, Brisbane, Raleigh, or Phoenix, you should definitely mark this date on your calendar.

As always, these events would not be possible without our passionate and dedicated Meetup leaders. They are the foundation of our local communities, and we want to thank them for that!
