Hey @all,

we like to invite you to our monthly meetup at the trivago tower in Düsseldorf. In July, we want to play around with the format and try something new: Explain like I'm five.

Inspired by the Subreddit explain like I'm five ( we want to bring the complex world of Web Engineering closer to everyone by explaining terms, words, areas, or questions that you and everyone else understand this.

The rules
