Instead of a workshop this year we are running a Dev Exchange and Panel on Friday 10th November 2017, we also have a bonus talk with Tom Erskine from Magento, discussing their NEW Magento Functional Test Framework.

Location And Tickets

The session will take place from 18:00 – 21:00 at the Space 48 offices in central Manchester; Acresfield (5th floor), 8 Exchange Street, Manchester M2 7HA.

Tickets are available to full conference ticket holders at no extra charge, you will receive a link to reserve your Dev Exchange and Panel ticket in your full conference ticket purchase confirmation email. These tickets are limited so get yours NOW!

Dev Exchange

The Dev Exchange is your opportunity to connect with fellow developers to discuss and collaborate on specific topics. There will be multiple topics available for you to pick from so that you can discuss the area that interests you most. The topics available will be: Deployment, PWA, Optimisation/Performance, Training and finally a table where any topic goes!


We also have three respected names from the community and the Director of Operations of Magento themselves on our panel; Vinai Kopp, Ian Cassidy, Andreas Von Studnitz and Mike Mafnas. The topic will be Best Practices, but you will have your opportunity to ask any general questions too.

Bonus Talk

We are pleased to have Tom Erskine, a Senior Software Development Engineer from Magento with us to discuss their NEW Functional Test Framework. He will be covering the features of this new framework, the roadmap, and impact to Magento programs, such as the Extension Quality Program and Community Pull Requests.
