Another most exciting and interesting presentation of the event belonged to Vinai Kopp (Guru of Magento), who held a great session on “TDD Katas in Magento 2”. The presentation was focused on standard coding practices that have to be followed in Magento.
We at Envision Ecommerce also had a great speaking opportunity at Meet Magento India 2018 on “Impact of Magento in India” by our COO & Co-Founder, Vikrant Shukla. His speaking session was attended very well and it was aimed for those who’re already in and around Magento. He also got a special chance to have a one-on-one discussion with Ben Marks & Mark Lehnard for Magento’s growth in India & Brazil. Besides, it was also a great pleasure to meet Marsha Naidu (COO at MageMojo, LLC), Amit Bera and many other Magento experts in person.
The day ended with an excellent keynote given by Ben Marks regarding Magento Community – “Magento Community is all about care & collaboration”. On the whole, there was a lot to learn, meet, talk with Magento community, developers, mentors, Magento experts and renowned Magento leaders!
Moreover, when it comes to the city, we came to Ahemdabad without any expectation in our mind, and we were struck speechless by its beauty, cleanliness and greenery all around and fallen in love with Ahemdabad.
All in all Meet Magento India 2018 was a great event and filled with so much more than we can explain here. We feel proud to make some new friends there as the likes of DCKAP, CODILAR, Monsoon Consulting & Wagento.
