The best part of attending events is meeting new people in the Magento community. So now's your chance to introduce yourselves before we even arrive!
In case you don't know me, I'm Sherrie and I'm the Community Manager here at Magento.
Imagine is my all-time favorite event because in 2011 it was my first opportunity to meet face to face with the friends I'd made online in the Magento Community. This will be my sixth Imagine, I've also been to MagentoLive UK, MagentoLive France, MagentoLive Australia and several community organized events including Meet Magento NY, Meet Magento Spain, Meet Magento Germany, Meet Magento Netherlands, Meet Magento Argentina, MageTitans Italy, MageTitans Austin, MageUnconference NL and Meet Magento Poland.
When I'm not hanging out here you can usually find me hiking or wandering around the beach with friends.
Can't wait to see you at Imagine this year - please be sure to find me and say hi!
Wow. I always wanted to be first here
My name is Tom Karwatka, CEO of Divante.co - this is an eCommerce Software House - we build eCommerce related products and implement solutions. This will be ours 3th Imagine
Our products are
Would be great to get some feedback on these ones during the Imagine. We are also looking for contributors
Congrats on being first, @Divante LTD! I've been seeing quite a bit about both of those projects around the web, looking forward to seeing where they go!
Hello, I'll go next!
I'm Thien-Lan Weber, CMO at OneStepCheckout.
It's going to be the 3rd Imagine for me whilst our company has had a presence since the early days in 2010. We get the early bird tickets as soon as they are available because we get so much value out of this event: inspiration from key note speakers, trends and vibe from Magento experts and the Community, first hand feedback from customers, collaboration ideas from Agency, Extension Partners, Magento teams etc... I just hope this year I don't break my phone on day one of the conference!
I've also had the pleasure to attend other big events like Magento Live UK and France, Meet Magento Netherlands as well as world first like Meet Magento Norway (I'm based in Oslo).
For those who don't know us, we are the expert in checkout for Magento, focusing on developing and constantly improving our one product: the Original OneStepCheckout. This year we can proudly join Magento 2 conversations and share case studies as our OneStepCheckout for Magento 2 extension released last September and keeps evolving everyday.
In my free time I enjoy playing with my sons (6 and 9), cooking, eating out and travelling. PM me if you'd like shopping tips while in Vegas
My name is TJ Gamble, and I am the found/owner of Jamersan. We are a Magento Professional Partner and an SI focused on custom Magento site builds. This will be my third Imagine in a row and I look forward to networking and seeing more about what Magento has going on for the upcoming year and what the community has been up to!
For the last two years, I've been to every major Magento event in the US (MageTitans, Meet Magento, Imagine).
All of my free time is spent working on my automotive obsession and making videos for my Ecommerce-aholic YouTube Channel.
Hi, I am Kalpesh Mehta and I work for CMI Enterprises as a Magento Specialist. This will be my 5th Imagine
Looking forward to meet all my Magento friends and network with companies. My favorite way to spend my free time at Magento Imagine event is to gamble lol.
See ya guys there!
I'm John Knowles, Head of Development at JH Magento Enterprise Partner in the UK.
This will be my second time at Magento Imagine. Last year blew my mind and changing my life, I can't wait to be back! You may have met me previously at Magento Live UK, Magento Live Paris or Mage Titans.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting some of you I didn't bump into last year.
Feel free to get in touch on twitter @knowj or in MageChat.
Hi, my name is Albert and I'll be attending my first Imagine this year! I'm the digital marketing manager at a smaller company called BDS Laundry Systems.
I am the digital marketing manager for our e-commerce site where we sell laundry parts. I have a wide range of responsibilities including managing products, content, the newsletter, promotions, sales reports and API connections within Magento plus managing the AdWords account, using Google Analytics to discover traffic patterns and where we can improve our user experience, SEO, shipping, photos and all of the problems that arise.
I'm looking forward to Imagine 2018 to learn about how to better optimize my Magento store for mobile (PWAs), email marketing, retargeting and just gain a better overall understanding of working efficiently within Magento's available tools.
I'll be at the sports book during my free time at Imagine 2018
Looking forward to seeing you there @amaruggi @john_jh @Kalpesh Mehta @tj_gamble @ThienLan!
Hey all - I'm Mike Whitby and I'm the head of Magento architecture at Salmon, we're a pretty large SI in the UK but the bulk of the company is focussed on Hybris and Websphere. I've been working with Magento for a long time (since 1.1 I think) but haven't ever been to imagine before so am really looking forward to seeing what it's about!
Hope to see some of you there
