Strengthening collaboration by partnership between Meet Magento Association and Magento

Opening keynote touched two topics. Dr Thomas Feist talked about a need of digitalization. Thomas Goletz emphasised the importance of a collaboration between Meet Magento Association and Magento. The collaboration means that Magento started paying more attention to its bigger power - vivid community.

Going global in eCommerce

I gave a presentation entitled Cross border and Magento. Take off, aviate, navigate! to share with Magento community my experience of building international online stores on Magento.

You can find the slides to my presentation here.

Learning from mistakes of others

A great idea during Meet Magento Leipzig was a session FuckUp Nights@MM16DE which goal was to share the experience with failed projects.

After party!

Long-awaited after party attracted many until late hours at Moritzbastei ... 🙂
It was a great occasion to chat about eCommerce related topics.

Quo vadis Magento?

The second day was started by opening keynote by Magento evangelist Ben Marks. It was about the future of Magento. The rest of a day was packed with many interesting presentations about Magento security, content marketing, personalised digital content.

Networking experience during a break in the digital world sometimes looked like this 🙂
