Live Demo Evening!!
By popular demand this month’s London Meetup is a live sprint showcase of just some of the great applications we have within Open Banking. We had an overwhelming response to our request for volunteers to demo. Our selection, this time, is from a breadth of sectors and at different points in the value chain. Undoubtedly, we’ll be running another demo evening.
These are real live demos from the architects themselves of new products, not death by a PowerPoint Pitch!! So a huge thank you to our speakers for generously stepping forward…
I’m genuinely excited to share our runner and riders.
As always there will be food and drink available. Lindsay from Yapily calls our selection ‘The Beauty and The Beast combo’ – Pizza’s & healthy wraps. Of course, there will be drinks available too, again with a nod to a healthy non-alcoholic alternative, as it’s a school night!
We’re looking forward to seeing you all for what is billed to be an informative and fun evening.
