Some highlights and insights from our CEO Sergey Lysak who gave a talk about Lightning Fast Development With the Power of Composer at the annual Magento Live UK 2016.
1 Magento declared about official partnership with Meet Magento Association. That should influence and change Magento Community and the way how that part of the eCosystem works for the better. When Vice President of Product Management at Magento Paul Boisvert was announcing it on the stage he asked for Keynote at Meet Magento Fiji or Bali, but Executive Director at Meet Magento Association Thomas Goletz was able to promise just Keynote at Meet Magento New Zealand for now. Anyhow we’re looking forward and waiting for all three!
