The entire PrestaShop team is still buzzing from the largest, most beautiful and memorable event in our history! Yes, the 7th Annual PrestaShop Barcamp was an enormous success and it is due to YOU! Your support and dedication made this event. We grow as your grow and from the core of our hearts, the PrestaTeam would like to say THANK YOU!

2,000 Barcamp Registrations lead to nearly 1,500 in attendance. The entire Red Carpet was filled; the conferences, workshops and even the hallways were packed with developers, merchants and Ecommerce experts.
There are countless stories we could share with you. First, let’s do a quick summary of the 2013 PrestaShop Barcamp highlights.

Exceptional Speakers
We had speakers from Google, Twitter, Github, Facebook, PayPal, eBay and more. Each speaker shared their own Ecommerce experiences, tips and wisdom to a conference room packed with every seat filled. Take a look at this video presentation by Mark Otto, creator of Bootstrap and designer at Github.

Ecommerce Workshops a Huge Hit!

The line was out the door and each person left with expert advice and new strategies given by the PrestaShop team.

Meet the Partners
Our partner stands were always active. Visitors met with our Partners who happily shared their tips and strategies to merchants, developers and web agencies.

Barcamp Open Forum
The Community Open Forum Barcamp space was the place to be to think outside-the-box. Speakers came to share new ideas and innovate old ideas for the new era. Topics included SEO with Hummingbird, best development troubleshooting, IP+Server relation and much more. Thank you for all the volunteer community speakers and participants. The Community also has to listen to the Community. It is for this reason that you came to share your knowledge and experience in this space. Thank you to all the speakers and participants!
