#DigiClanDev Meetup: Digital Marketers Meet Developers

The DigiClanDev Meetup was a first of its kind and was it explosive and invigorating. Discussions, networking and friendly banters flowed between the participants and there was never a dull moment and not to forget the yummy #jollofrice provided by Playfood. It was held on the 4th of November at TerraKulture, VI with over 120 digital marketers and developers in attendance. The goal of the meetup was to drive industry collaborations to encourage inter-industry growth.
