Although this year, Distributed Magento Contribution was held online due to the COVID- pandemic, the energy and enthusiasm among the team was at an all-time high.
#MagentoContributionDay is going digital this year, and not even COVID-19 can stop the biggest Magento Community event from happening.

With all this, the 3rd Edition of India’s biggest Distributed Magento Contribution Day came to a conclusion.
APPSeCONNECT was proud to be the official partner and host for Distributed Magento Contribution Day for the 3rd time from Kolkata. While due to the COVID-19 pandemic the event was held digitally, the excitement of 2018’s 1st Distributed Magento Contribution day and the thrill of the 2nd Distributed Magento Contribution day held in 2019, was missed. However, what was not amiss was the coordination, teamwork, energy and enthusiasm for Magento among the team at APPSeCONNECT.
We are looking forward to greater things to come with Magento and their ever-enthusiastic community members.
Now, you can easily connect your Magento store with the back-end ERP/CRM system to automate the business process!
