A special thank you to our speakers, whose work was great: François Ziserman (Araok!), Sébastien Lucas (Oxalide), Tomasz & Romain (Team from SITTI), Cyrille, Geoffrey & Yann (la NewQuest Team), and Xavier Bonnaud and all his team (Profileo).
This day, dedicated to PrestaShop, saw very rich exchanges, future collaborations, and meetings (sometimes from far!), we think particularly about Sunil and Darshak, who came from Singapore especially for the occasion, Jordi, Pedro, Sergio, Ruben (Spain), Kees & Marije (Netherlands)... and many more!
We're already thinking about the next edition of the Barcamp PrestaShop, real place to meet our community, which we hope will also exceed our expectations!
