It was a mere thought until it turned into reality!
The Magento Live India 2017 event held at Bengaluru made a lasting impact on our minds as we saw several Magento enthusiasts from different parts of India coming to Bengaluru to learn and know more about the offerings of the Magento community. We strongly felt that the magnificence of this community should reach to different parts of India.
However, the seeds of developing local platforms for Magento were sown during the Magento Live India 2017 ‘Pre-event meet’ where few of us were casually discussing with some of the Senior Magento team members and community members like Sherrie Rohde (Community Manager), Max Yekaterynenko (Director of Community Engineering), Eugene Tulika (Evangelist), Oleksii Korshenko (Software Architect), Talesh Seeparsan, Ramesh Kumar, Vijay Golani and few others about the idea of expanding the Magento community to different parts of India. Little did we know, that it was going to turn into reality so soon.

Solwin Infotech takes pleasure in announcing that Surat city is the latest to join the wagon of setting up Magento Meetup groups in different cities of India. Surat now has a Magento Meetup Group of its own. We encourage Magento enthusiasts from Surat and South Gujarat region (Ankaleshwar, Bharuch, Bardoli, Vyara, Navsari, Bilimora, Valsad, Vapi etc) to come and experience the offerings and latest happenings from around the world in Magento. If you are a beginner in Magento, it will surely be a delight for you to learn and know a lot more about Magento. If you are an expert, then you can play the role of a speaker and cascade your knowledge among others. The schedules for events will be released from time to time on the official Surat Magento Meetup Group page.
This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Max Yekaterynenko (Director of Community Engineering), Eugene Tulika (Evangelist) and Taleesh Seeparsan. Special thanks to Sherrie Rohde (Community Manager) for the providing the approval.
Solwin Infotech is privileged and ready to take this baton ahead in spreading the awareness of the offerings of Magento Community in our city through the Magento Meetup Surat. We think this is a great way of contributing to the Magento community.
We are 39 members as of now and positive that the number will increase as more and more people become aware about this initiative.
We think this is great step to strengthen the Magento roots in India. Lets join the Hands and share about Surat Magento Meetup Group
