Save the date for the 4th Manchester MuleSoft Meetup!
Bobby James (The Co-operative Bank) will talk about the concept of layers and the design mistakes that can be made if one follows it too rigorously. Francis Edwards (Saint Gobain Building Distribution) will show some practical examples of how the decomposition of layers can satisfy such requirements as support, operations, microservices and even enable easier iteration of improvements to the overall workflow. Finally, Justin Saliba (Ricston / EPAM) will walk us through the practical adoption of a unified integration and API platform to enable Air Malta’s digital transformation.
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.
