It’s been almost two months since I got back from the Meet Magento Poland 2014 conference. These last two months were really busy for me and a lot of things are still going on. I haven’t got a chance to write about the event yet. I decided to not write a full story, but I’m going to wrap up a random list of notes and thoughts I have gathered after the conference.
- interesting case study of a multi-store and multi-language Magento integration was presented by LPP and Accenture
- it was hard to switch between Business and Technology tracks and I lost more than half of Kuba Zwoliński presentation about iBeacon. I hope to see videos from the conference sometime soon!
- there was a nice introduction to Magento 2 caching by Marko Martinović. I was surprised that the Magento 2 Community Edition includes Full Page Cache support
- good points on contributing to open source Magento extensions and projects in general by Tsvetan Stoychev from Jarlssen. I still need to review extensions published on Jarlssen github
- I couldn’t watch Damian Luszczymuk’s presentation about Docker as I chose the Flexible Billing talk by our CEO, Matt MacDougall. However I was really lucky and Damian showed me the presentation in brief later that day. I promise to dig into Docker soon.
- there was an interesting case study on Magento-SAP integration made for Mennica Polska by Robert Żochowski from Bold Agency. I’m excited to buy some gold from a store based on Magento.
- I got some interesting ideas about introducing developers to Magento development and noted a bunch of training materials from Ben Marks presentation
- Daniel Sloof made a good overview on HHVM and I’m curious to see Magento 2 running on that engine
- our booth with space figures and NASA suits was very successful, bringing a lot of people to our place!
- I missed the presentation about Magento indexers by Maciej Ostrowski and I hope to see the video soon
- I saw a cool demo of cobby.io, tool which allows me to manage product data in Excel. It sounds like a crazy idea but looks really interesting and works nice
- community dinner at Podwale 25 restaurant was delicious. I hope to visit that cool place next time I’m in Warsaw
- enjoyed Thomas Goletz’s story about Gobi desert race and about Chinese Magento branch
- conference iPhone application was really cool, however iBeacon stuff didn’t work on my iPhone. It’s time to move to the new one
These are just random thoughts I got after the conference. I really liked the event and I hope to go to Meet Magento 2015 later this year :-)
