Memorable Moments

It was special to meet our partners Willem Wigman & Vinai Kopp (Hyva), Mark Mikkelson (Shiptheory), Ranjith Vijayan and Akhil Shenay (Terrific Minds), Aarti Patole and Olga Zhilinskaya (Rave Digital+Aheadworks) & Hitesh Matlani (Avid Brio).

I also got a chance to catch up with Mathias, Willem, Vinai, Manish, and Avinash for dinner. Being new to the Magento world it was an absolute delight to spend time with the great minds working in the Magento ecosystem for decades and learning from their vast experience. Before I forget, the food was indeed delicious!
