  5. Why Engineers.SG?
    • Created to answer the question, "where are the engineers
    in Singapore?", Engineers.SG seeks to be the place for
    anyone to get to know, learn and interact with the
    Singapore tech community.
    • On the site, you can find a curated list of videos recording
    of local tech meetups and events.
