I started my #RoadToImagine from Melbourne to Vegas for the Imagine event by leaving cloudy Melbourne and Balance Internet team











I Landed at LAX Airport and put my foot for first time on USA territory!


Together with James Horne, Director of Strategy, Mal Williams, Director of Technology at Balance Internet we rented a car, and started the 5.0 litre engine of a Ford Mustang and started our drive to Las Vegas!


We reached Las Vegas in late evening and checked into Wynn Hotel

Pre Imagine started with breakfast with our friends from TechDivision. After, I made my way to the annual Magento Imagine Race #BigDamRun. The run started at the Historic Railroad Hiking Trail and followed an old railroad bed through 3 tunnels and turned around at the Hoover Dam.


After such a good run and with strong #MagentoImagine crew, I was excited and looking forward to taste the “#MagentoImagine” life for the next few days.

Next stop was #MagentoHackaton, where I met very interesting and smart people from the Magento World.
We were talking about new features, problems, resolution around Magento as well as prototyping concepts, fixing bugs, suggesting new features on fly


In the meantime, @Mal Willams and @James Horne were attending Magento Council and discussed how we can improve the Magento partner ecosystem at a global level with strong partners from around the world.

This year, Magento Partner Summit was exciting and held earlier than usual! We were proud to receive the highly sought 2017 Magento “Spirit of Excellence” Award.


And finally I met up with our trusted partner Paypal
