As Magento is getting closer to its 10th anniversary, more and more enthusiasts are getting involved in its community. Developers and merchants from across the globe want to share their experience and lend an ear to the trailblazers of the e-commerce.
What’s new in the community? What is going to be trendy in e-business? We often feel being stewed in our own juice. So there should be a moment to share a word with someone who has the same obstacles and challenges.
As for major offline Magento events, there are three main concepts.
- Live/Imagine, supervised by Magento itself. A set of conferences that usually takes place in the highly-developed economies states: namely France, UK, Australia.

- MageTitans. Set of conferences around the world (with a prime event in Austin, Texas) to gather the most tech savvy Magento devotees and live up a wide Magento developers community.

Magento Unconference usually presents itself as a sort of conference, but without planned talks or presentation and with much longer and funnier breaks.
