  1. What if I’m not 18, can I still join? – We require you to be at least 18 years old because some events require ID card. Also that we think you are old enough to cover events.
  2. What if I’m not in Jakarta? – You need to be in Jakarta so you can join our monthly meeting and well, most events happen in Jakarta. But if you are outside Jakarta, yes you can still apply, but we will still prioritise people live in Jakarta.
Good luck and hope to see you soon ^^
