On August 4 2017, I received an email inviting me as a guest speaker at this year's JomLaunch 5.0 held in Kuala Lumpur's TM Convention Center.

About JomLaunch:

JomLaunch's aim is to help community projects, open source projects, personal or even commercial projects by giving them definative deadline to get their projects ready by Launch Day. For 2017, JomLaunch 5.0 will be held at the TM Convention Center in Kuala Lumpur on 16th September.
