Meet Magento Brazil 2015 Recap

October 09, 2015

StoryformOn October 5, Nexcess assisted and sponsored Meet Magento Brazil, one of the largest Magento events in South America. Our Sales and Community Development Teams connected with local merchants and developers eager to learn about our trajectory into the Brazilian market.

Carlos Hix, Director of GHX Consulting, opened the day by speaking on the current state of Brazilian eCommerce and highlighted how the community could contribute to its continuing expansion and success.

As the morning pressed on, we were treated to Magento Evangelist Ben Mark’s presentation on Magento 2 and his roguish flip-flops, and e-smart Analyst and Developer Tiago Sampaio spoke on how to use Magento to succeed in the marketplace.

The morning sessions left us hungry, but an invigorating Brazilian lunch of meat, cheese, rice, and watermelon juice, we were ready for more. Miguel Balparda, Senior Magento Developer for Nexcess, presented “Maintaining an Open Source Project,” detailing his work with the Magento extension, Turpentine.

Around 6 p.m., after Carlos was kind enough to thank everyone for their assistance, we headed to a Brazilian steakhouse, where our own Josh Ward ambushed us with his version of the local cuisine. We can neither confirm nor deny the consumption of delicious, refreshing, and scandalous caipirinha.
