DCKAP is a pioneer in organizing Magento meetups in Chennai, India (South). The 7th Chennai Magento Meetup (22nd, July) was organized by DCKAP and sponsored by dZine-Hub.

Thank you, dZine-Hub.  dckap

Compared to previous meetups, the RSVPs for this meetup were really encouraging. There was an obvious change after Magento came to India and organized Magento Live in Bangalore. They created awareness across India about meetups and the advantages of attending them. 

Registration opened up at 9 AM IST and 25 Magento enthusiasts turned up for the meetup.

After the tea break, the next session was on the ‘Future of Shopping’, a presentation by Shiva Kumaar, Strategic Account Manager, Productimize.
