Zoho Developer Hangout (ZDH) Speakers

ZDH aims to provide a platform for developers to share their expertise and learn from the community. These monthly virtual sessions are presented by our Developer Community members themselves, along with our product experts. This format offers community members a chance to engage in interactive discussions, share their own experiences, and gain valuable insights into innovative problem-solving strategies employed by their peers.

We are grateful for the contributions of the presenters in making the ZDH segment a big success among the community members. By sharing their knowledge and expertise with the community, they have significantly expedited learning and facilitated avenues for aspiring developers to explore creative solutions.
