A fabulous yacht pulled out of NYC’s Chelsea pier, gracefully slicing through the Hudson River’s choppy waters. A crowd was drinking their morning coffee while taking in the inviting view of the Statue of Liberty in the distance. No, this was not a fancy regatta – this was Meet Magento New York 2022 – the first in-person community-driven Magento conference in the US since Covid-19. Naturally, I couldn’t miss the opportunity to reconnect live and in-person with our community.
When I started working with Magento, it quickly became obvious that this is not just another e-commerce platform but also a remarkable and a vibrant community. Blogs, podcasts, webinars – they all give you a feeling that you are a part of something bigger. But I sensed a real influence of Magento community only after attending Meet Magento Poland 2017.
Once I’ve decided to celebrate my birthdays every year in different places. Last one I had in the other country. This year I had it at Meet Magento Poland in beautiful Poznan. It was a long trip, which took about a day to get to Poznan from Ukraine. But finally, I reached the destination. I arrived very late at night and decided to take a walk to the place where we stayed. The city was quiet and amazing at night.
October 5th, 2016, was a special day for our company, as it was a culmination of the efforts that we were putting together during the past several months. And we were not alone in this, together with a Spanish Magento partner, interactiv4, we have pulled off an amazing Meet Magento New York. It was a third MMNY, but it was quite different from the ones held before, and that’s why I believe that it was also a very special event for the whole Magento ecosystem.
Today we publish an interview with Viacheslav Kravchuk, CEO of Atwix and Tim Hahn, CEO of one of the biggest German Magento Enterprise Partner, netz98, talking about global eCommerce, Meet Magento, and how European companies can find their market fit internationally.
Today I would like to get back to the 4th of July, when not only the USA became independent but also Meet Magento DE happened in the cozy city of Leipzig. It was not my first Meet Magento, but this time, I was the only one representing Atwix at the event and I should say that it was an extraordinary experience.
Last week we visited Meet Magento Netherlands and what a great event it was! Organizers (kudos to each and every one of them) chose a green and cosy city named Utrecht. Right upon arrival we were blown by the numbers of bicycles in the streets. It really seemed at times that there were more bicycles than people in the city!
Last Thursday was not just the last day of March, but it was also the first day when Meet Magento event happened in Czech Republic. We were lucky to witness that moment in Prague and I’d happily like to share with you how did it go.
This week has started with a new host country for Meet Magento and the most northern location for this event series in all of its history. Of course, as Atwix is a co-organiser of Meet Magento Ukraine, I couldn’t miss the chance to attend Stockholm and get to see how Meet Magento develops its presence there.
2014 year was a successful one for Meet Magento events family with 12 events taking place all over the world and stepping into the new continent – North America. The official “closing of the season” happened during 24 and 25 of November in Warsaw, where Meet Magento Poland traditionally took place being the last Meet Magento event of the year. Atwix sponsored every Meet Magento Poland, and this time was represented by me with a presentation about conversion rate improvements in e-commerce.
