By way of introduction, I work for Christchurch based e-tailer (www.e-tailer.co.nz
), the newly minted development team behind Off The Back (www.offtheback.co.nz
). We are in the process of shifting from a custom-made Ruby on Rails system to a Magento store. Along with this we will be progressively launching a number of specialised Magento stores.
Obviously Magento is a huge learning curve - especially coming from a Rails background - so I'm very keen to start developing relationships with the NZ Magento community. I'd be quite keen to attend the next meetup if it'll work logistically. Is it still planned? I don't see much activity on the meetup.com
