As an assistant to the MuleSoft Meetup Leader in Phoenix and now in Los Angeles, the MuleSoft Meetup group is a platform I love for its simplistic approach to the direct collaboration of the developer community. Beginning almost 1-year ago, I developed the Phoenix meetup group with Leader, Vijay Rao. Since its establishment, the group has grown tremendously, typically meeting every over a month for new and exciting discussions on the latest updates in the Mule realm. Now that I have relocated back to the East coast, I miss being directly involved in the Meetup planning and development process. That is why I have sought out a co-leader position with AE, Christopher Young, in Raleigh. The creation of these groups allows those with questions or who want to learn more about the MuleSoft Anypoint Platform a chance to reach out to others and collaborate openly in a friendly, engaging environment. I believe every major city deserves this opportunity for the local-developer group and would greatly appreciate the chance to work alongside an excellent leading partner.
