Magento Events Enter New European Cities

Editor's note: Every time I write about the next Magento event, it makes me travel overseas in my thoughts and imagine those amazing cities and places. Sometimes it is even more advantageous over physical presence, as you can totally concentrate on the history, architecture, and folklore of the place and have no distraction.
