Hi everyone and welcome back to another edition of the
Hussey Coding blog
We are almost there! Everything we have been building towards is just around the corner and tomorrow we will see Meet Magento UK 2020 in all its glory! And to help you get ready for it we thought it would be helpful to take a look at the event as a whole to help you plan your day.
First things first the conference will kick off at 9.30am (UK time) with a welcome from JH CEO and event organiser Jamie Huskisson. The whole event will be hosted on a virtual event platform and you should receive details on how to access that sometime today if not tomorrow morning.
Each session will last about 30mins and close up to 5 mins of live Q&A at the end and I have it on good authority that even though some of the sessions will be pre-recorded for fear of technical issues that all of the speakers will be live for the Q&A's.
With the whole event being live the reality is that you are not going to be able to watch all sessions from the same track one after the other, as they will be happening at the same time so you are going to want to plan your day out to be sure to catch the session you really want to see however the virtual event platform will help you do this by letting you build a personal agenda and since there are handy 5 min intervals between each session you can easily switch between tracks to get to the sessions you want to hear the most.
But don't worry too much about missing out if you want to hear 2 sessions that are in the same time slot because all ticket holders will have access to an archive of the sessions later on.
We've also recently received news that the lunchtime entertainment is 2015 Finalist of Britains got talent and comedic impressionist Danny Posthill who will be taking virtual centre stage at 12.30.
Check out these video's below to see him in action.
When we began this series we talked about how we loved the mixture of commerce and community at last years event and though this year won't quite be the same for obvious reasons there will still be opportunities for you to chat and meet other people at the event through the networking channels that will be available on the platform and of course by using good old social media but don't forget to use the #mm20uk.
It is going to be a packed event so it's really important that you do some pre-planning, below you will find a list of each tracks speakers with a link to each of our blogs on each track.
