Build an Experiment

#devKL is a biweekly meetup to encourage local software developers to collaborate and learn from each other. We're hoping to build the development community by providing group mentorship, and encouraging members to connect and continue the collaboration between events.
Each session's topic is announced a week ahead of time. If you'd like to present a topic or facilitate a session, please contact Adrian ([masked]).
