We hosted the first ever Magento Meetup in Orange County on April 20th and it was a success!
What an incredible night for the Magento community in OC. It’s not every day that people from all backgrounds can come together to discuss Magento.
It was such a thrill to host such a large variety of Magento developers in one place. We had a whopping 23 dedicated Magento attendees, ranging from Senior and Junior developers to recent grads. All of these Magento enthusiasts came to this first event to expand their network and learn about all things Magento.
Some of the attendees were new to Magento and attended this event to learn about the platform as beginners, but are really involved in the Meetup Community. We were thrilled to expand our knowledge of this trade to these eager minds.
This first meeting was about how to get started with Magento. For the next Meetup on May 19th , we will have 2 volunteers that will present 2 tutorials to get started with Magento Block Development and Themes Development.
This monthly meetup group is dedicated to learning about the Magento platform. Our goals are to stay current on Magento products and topics, discuss extensions and templates, share knowledge and experience, and network with people interested in Magento. We welcome Magento Developers, Graphic and Web Designers, Magento Users and anyone interested in selling products online.
We look forward to meeting more Magento folks at the next Meetup. Please visit http://www.meetup.com/OC-Magento-Meetup/
