In case you haven’t heard, Customer Paradigm will be heading out to Las Vegas for the 2017 Magento Imagine Conference in just two short weeks. We are thrilled to be participating this year as Diamond level sponsors! With three jam-packed days of keynotes, breakout sessions, networking events and parties – there is a lot to see, learn and be excited about! Here are just a few of the events we can’t wait for this Imagine Conference!
Our developers can’t wait to connect with Magento Developers from around the globe at the pre-conference hackathon. This fun, community event is a great way to meet new developers while working on exciting projects. The main point of this type of event is to be able to sit down and dig into something you may not have the time to focus on normally – and we can all relate to that!
Keynotes & General Sessions
The Imagine Conference is the super bowl of Magento events, and the lineup of speakers reflects that sentiment. Last year Magic Johnson lit up the crowd with his energizing and inspiring keynote. We expect this year to be no different with Nike’s “Greatest Athlete Ever” Serena Williams, presenting her keynote on Tuesday, April 4th. Alongside Serena is a whole roster of Magento heavyweights – including Magento CEO Mark Lavelle, Jamie Clarke as master of ceremonies and more!
With dozen’s of speakers leading a huge variety of breakout sessions over three days, the options are nearly endless for how to build your conference schedule.
We are thrilled to announce that our very own Jeff Finkelstein will be hosting two breakout sessions on “Extending Your Reach: Third Party Marketplaces on Magento.” Third-party marketplaces can represent either a huge threat, or a huge opportunity for merchants, in this breakout session learn how to connect your Magento catalog to third-party marketplaces, avoid common pitfalls, and strategies and tactics for succeeding in the space. There are two opportunities for you to catch this session – Tuesday, April 4th from 3:30-4:15 and Wednesday, April 5th from 12:25-12:45.
Our team is also looking forward to breakout sessions lead by Miguel Balparada a Senior Developer at Nexcess, Stewart McGrath the CEO and Founder of Section.io, Ben Marks a Magento Evangelist, Craig Peasley the Senior Director of Product Marketing for Magento and Peter Sheldon, Magento’s Vice President of Strategy. However, these are just a few of the many incredible breakout session offerings during this Imagine conference, be sure to hop on over to the full agenda to check out all of the amazing speakers!
The DevExchange is the final event of the conference, and a chance for developers to come together to discuss key issues and learn how other developers are solving the same problems. Our developers are excited to check out the new format for this event this year, as this is the first year that the event is formatted as roundtable discussions that the community has voted on ahead of time!
Legendary Imagine Party
It’s not an Imagine Conference without the parties, and it’s no secret that Magento knows how to throw an incredible party. The second night of the conference plays host to the “Legendary Imagine Evening Event.” Each year this event is extravagantly themed, and executed with everything you would expect from a top notch Vegas party. Our team can’t wait to check out what this year’s theme is going to be, and spend the night mixing and mingling with our friends and colleagues!
