Chris Brabender

Technical Track 14:30 - 15:05

Building a Maintainable Future with Magento 2

One of the questions I always ask myself when starting something new is "is it sustainable?", when you start something new you're full of passion and excitement and everything seems possible but then you hit that inevitable wall, things that seemed doable then are out of the question now and so the ability to make good, measured decisions now to create a sustainable future for your store is vitally important and Christ is here to help us in doing that.

Who's it for?

This session is for you if you have a Magento store or develop stores for clients, if you need help with the implementation of ideas or are wanting to grow and are stuck.

Who is Chris Brabender?

Starting as a web developer at MyMoney Chris then moved on to be a web producer at Smith & Rowe, eCommerce solutions architect at Balance Internet, lead developer & head of platform strategy at Gorilla group before becoming a solutions architect and Magento practice lead at Absolunet.

Transforming Shopping Experience with Magento Page Builder

What if you could create amazing graphics, engaging campaigns and superior webpages all in a few clicks, with little technical know-how and all from within your Magento platform? Well, now you can, thanks to page builder, Media Manager and Adobe stock integrations. The future of eCommerce is not your ability to produce something OK and put it out there, the future is customer-centric and customer-driven and so Olena is here to show us these tools and to give us some insight into what is to come.

Anyone running or developing Magento stores/sites and anyone who is looking for new ways of saving both time and money in their design/media spaces.
