It's the final month of the year and let's have a night of chatter and code! Last week was the Hour of Code https://hourofcode.com so anybody wanting to learn to code is more than welcome to come and ask questions or if you want to go through any Hour of Code exercises we'll be available to help guide you through and help you learn! If you're wanting to go through any other code tutorials that's great too 🙂 I may look into Tensorflow https://www.tensorflow.org/tutorials/ following on from Devfest last month https://www.meetup.com/GDG-Brunei-Darussalam-Women-Techmakers-Brunei/events/255414669/

This month we'll talk about APIs which pair very well with webhooks that was discussed at last month's meetup https://www.meetup.com/BruneiGeekMeet/events/256483574/ to help you create custom functionality to help you build services and features into existing systems or even have it as a backend to a custom made interface!

The rest of the night will be available for chatter 🗣 and code 💻

Hope to see you all there!

Note: If you're interesting to present a topic just let me know via DM / Twitter: @thewheat

[6:55] I did a thing / #fixBruneiWebsites ⚒
[7:10] Open floor discussion 🗣 and coding the night away 💻

The "I did a thing / #fixBruneiWebsites" session is a place for anybody to
- share about things they have built (if anybody attended Brunei Hacks, would love to hear of any experiences https://www.instagram.com/brunei.hacks/ : I was there for only Friday night so I can share a couple of thoughts)
- or a place to chat about websites that could use fixing (See more details here: https://blog.thewheatfield.org/2018/10/16/brunei-car-prices-and-fixbruneiwebsites/ and a [recent write up](https://blog.thewheatfield.org/2018/12/01/fixbruneiwebsites-telbrus-horizontally-scrolling-website/) which seems to have been fixed on their site! 🎉 )
