The panel convenes at 4:30 p.m. Pacific time, Monday, April 11, in the Moutin 1 meeting room.
Shah also will join David Hess, a national sales director at Perficient, and Ashley Gensler, CEO of Loom Décor, to present “Migrating to Magento 2.0: Insight from a Beta Partner,” a first-hand account of the technical insights, considerations, and lessons learned installing Magento 2.0 Beta.

Our implementation at Loom Décor is a great example of a complex implementation that wouldn’t have been possible without the new features in this release.”
