IBM Developer SF team hosts weekly online meetups on various topics. Online events are one of the best ways to scale your Developer Relations program and reach developers anywhere, anytime and for a long time after the event.
The following online meetups we hosted in August 2019 with links to watch the recordings. I also encourage you to join our meetup so you will always know when our online meetups are scheduled. Our meetups are hosted by the wonderful Lisa Jung 👋.

⭐ Build serverless APIs using Postman and Apache OpenWhisk (August 28, 2019)
Application programming interface, or APIs, are essential to any solution or software and need to be tested individually and in integration with other moving pieces. Testing APIs as an activity can be owned by the developers, the QA testers, or both. The QA team generally does not have access to the code. They write scripts and harnesses to test the APIs.
In this hands-on online workshop with Upkar Lidder and Joyce Lin from Postman developers learned how easy it is to use Postman to create test cases and scripts that can be run automatically on APIs created on serverless platforms!
