The first ever Meet Magento Conference took place in Ahmedabad on January 6th, 2018.  Wagento organized the event with the anticipation of 100-150 people. In the end, we had 350 attendees across three halls.  The entire event was organized by the Wagento India team so you could say it was the first Magento event organized by Indian developers for Indian developers!

We would like to highlight just a few of the 100's of tweets that were generated at the event.
