How to Make the Most of Magento Events #MageTitansIT

Download to read offline

By the end of this event, you’ll be plotting out the next opportunity to gather insights with this amazing Magento community. In this short talk, I’ll share with you techniques I’ve learned to keep the momentum going after the event and for how to demonstrate the value of this day to your boss (whether that’s an employer or yourself) so that we’ll simply be saying ‘See you next time!’ instead of ‘Goodbye.’ (Also, a look at the Italian Magento community and Magento 2 adoption in Italy.)
