In case we haven’t spoken recently, you might have missed the chatter about Presto Changeo. My good friend Abe Shaw, VP Marketing at Presto-Changeo (the leading provider of Prestashop modules/add-ons and website dev provider), is helping organize Prestashop’s is holding their Barcamp event here in NYC on March 20th. I’d love it if you could come, hang out, meet me, yada yada.
If you don’t know about Prestashop yet, you should absolutely come and learn about the platform. It’s like Magento, but plenty of pros like it more. It’s an open-source, free e-commerce solution founded out of Paris & has offices in Miami too. The underlying technology has a strong undermining, based on the Smarty template engine, and is currently used by 100K+ ecommerce sites worldwide. PrestaShop was named the Best Open Source E-Commerce Application in the Packt 2010 Open Source Awards and the Best Open Source Business Application in the 2011 Open Source Awards.

In addition to everything Prestashop has planned (some great keynotes speakers, workshops, and of course, cocktails), Presto-Changeo will be holding “360 Degree Social Media Integration” workshops throughout the day.
Hope to see you there, and please pass this note along to anyone interested! I’d love to meet you guys there.
