V1.0 – May 10, 2017
The MuleSoft Meetup Program has been developed to expand the MuleSoft developer community. Any technical profile can apply to become a MuleSoft Meetup Leader (“Meetup Leader”). If you are selected, you will have the opportunity to become a leader and organizer of MuleSoft meetup groups across the world.
Meetup Leaders are required to adhere to this Code of Conduct. Your Meetup Leader status is nontransferable and may be suspended or removed at the discretion of MuleSoft at any time. Any breach of this Code of Conduct shall be cause for immediate termination. If your Meetup Leader status is terminated, all rights granted under the Meetup Program and this Code of Conduct will immediately cease.
Meetup Leaders will be introduced as such on the official MuleSoft Meetup Program website (https://meetups.mulesoft.com) through a bio listing their experience in integration and the MuleSoft ecosystem. Meetup Leaders can promote MuleSoft and its Developer Community by contributing articles for the official program’s website (https://meetups.mulesoft.com/past-meetups/), publishing content about their experience with MuleSoft’s products and meetups on social networks and on their personal website. Any use of the MuleSoft name or logos must be in express accordance with MuleSoft’s marketing and branding policies as provided to you.
MuleSoft may also help Meetup Leaders with the organization of local meetups. To assist and guide you, you will be granted direct contact with the Developer Relations Community Manager at MuleSoft. Unless otherwise specific in a signed writing between you and MuleSoft, MuleSoft has no financial obligations toward your meetups.
After demonstrating your commitment as a Meetup Leader during a three-month probation period, you may receive special MuleSoft swag. As a Meetup Leader, you agree to only use your Meetup Leader status to promote the MuleSoft ecosystem. You may not promote a MuleSoft competitor or another integration solution and may not harm MuleSoft’s reputation.
