In 2015, the year Meet Magento Greece was born, Inchooers Hrvoje and Dino witnessed a community rise and we don’t want to miss to see how it all panned out in the last three years. There were many Inchooers interested in attending this year’s #MM17GR but only Adrian and Želimir are fortunate enough to witness it firsthand.
Meet Magento Greece 2017 is the first Meet Magento event happening in two cities in parallel, where you can meet and learn from Magento developers and e-commerce leaders. Since Želimir will be one of the speakers, we asked him what are his expectations from the event.
So Želimir, you are heading off to Greece. Have you ever been there?
Želimir: Well, I have never been there. As a matter of fact, it has been quite some time that Greece has been on the list of countries I want to visit. So yeah, mixing pleasure with work is what we’ll have there. I really like Greek culture so this is going to be a great opportunity to see and learn a bit about it. Yeh, we learn a lot about it in school and all, but real deal is a completely different thing.
You are holding a presentation “Introducing Magento to Croatian market”. What is it about?
Želimir: The presentation I’ll have is a retrospective of the internal project we had at Inchoo. It took place in late 2016/early 2017 and it was about introducing Magento 2 to Croatian market. I am going to talk about the process, researches we did, tools we used, what we planned and what we learned. It was a u bumpy road but the one we needed to take. I am sure that conference guests will be interested to hear this kind of presentation as it includes a lot of different aspects.
What are you planning to visit while you’re there?
Želimir: Really thrilled to go to Athens, since there are so many things I want to see there. My colleague Adrian already prepared a short itinerary which is, quite frankly, easy to agree on. Acropolis, Parthenon, National Archaeological Museum are among the notable cultural places we aim to visit. Personally, I like to visit local markets whenever I visit new places, as nothing can give you a feel of a culture and it’s people as markets can. Therefore, Varvakios Agora is certainly on my list, if we find time for visit. Athens is also well known for its great restaurants and bars so we plan to visit those as well. Those might not be as culturally significant as Parthenon, but must not be missed either! 😉
