For this second meetup, we’ve prepared a lineup of topics around best practices of detecting and resolving issues with MuleSoft Monitoring, deep dive into logging, and key lessons on establishing an API delivery practice. The presentations will be followed by networking over pizza & beer.
The Manchester MuleSoft Meetup aims to educate, challenge and provide thought-provoking talks on MuleSoft’s API-led approach to integration and how it’s being used by organisations to transform their business. You can expect tech deep-dives from experienced Mule developers, presentations from end-users, discussing their challenges and successes, and architectural talks about different approaches to integration.
Our goal is to build a vibrant and self-sustaining Mule developer community in the region, foster engagement, evangelise and promote success based on real-world MuleSoft delivery experiences.
Please make sure to register and secure your ticket (RSVP) since the venue has a limited capacity.
