Speakers

Our speakers know a thing or two about Magento and can’t wait to share their knowledge at the much anticipated third, annual, full size, Mage Titans Manchester conference. All speakers are to be confirmed and we’ll be updating the speaker roster over the run up to the event (in no particular order), so keep checking back here for updates or catch them on the speakers’ news blog category!

We think you’ll be pleased with the first two names on our line-up – yes, they have returned!! And this year Ben has kindly offered to host the day!
