• "Welcome" by Boris Hrkic

• "Migrating from Magento 1 to Magento 2" by Matthias Zeis

After many years of development, Magento 2 was published in November 2015. Substantial changes were introduced (also see from the Vienna PHP User Group "Ecommerce" Meetup last year) which means that an update from Magento 1 to Magento 2 is not trivial. I want to give my honest tips on how to get the most out of the migration, both for the merchant and the integrator.

Matthias Zeis (Tech Lead) - He is PHP developer for about 15 years now and he spent most of his last 7 years with implementing Magento web shops, improving the code quality and workflow in our company and lately a lot of devops work. This year he officially switched to a Tech Lead position and one of his roles is to make them fit for Magento 2.

"Treat the migration from Magento 1 to Magento 2 not as a software update but as a platform switch - use the chance a store makeover." Matthias Zeis

*Attendance Policy:

*Respect and consideration for others are Top Priority; be considerate by refraining from being a "NO SHOW" (Not showing up and leaving your RSVP a "yes", or changing RSVP to a "no" within 2 hours of an event and not communicating with the organizer) or a "LATE CANCEL" (Cancelling out of an event within 24 hrs of the event).

*Events take work for organizers to coordinate, especially those requiring RSVPs. Make sure you are able to make it to an event to which you RSVP and if you anticipate a conflict or being late, give us a heads up. We understand that things come up and life interferes, but please do your best. ;)

*If you find that you can't make it to something you've signed up for -- CHANGE YOUR RSVP as soon as possible. Events take time & energy to plan. If you don't show up AND make no effort to let the Event Planner know what happened --- that's a "NO SHOW".

*No Show/Late Cancel policy: If you have a history of doing this (we keep track of attendance on your profile), we won't be able to count on you to show up when you say you are going to. Out of respect and courtesy to others that DO show up, we may bump you to the waiting list for meetups with limited space in favor of those with a positive attendance history. If you make a habit out of no showing or late cancelling, we may remove you from the group.
