History

It was in 2016 when it first meet up, where an initiative by Ahmad Faisal, the founder to have a community meet up which initially to bridging the gap, between startups and developers – I guess you directly know how the name was decided. The startup companies usually have ideas, innovation ideas but to execute their ideas, they require developers, software developers. With this meet up, hoping to bridging the gap between startup companies and developers. The community hoping that developers easily to be able to tap with startup companies, and working on ideas implementation, and vice versa. Then, there been several meet up since then, here are  at MaGIC, Cyberjaya and BIT Group, Cyberjaya.
