Using Magento In The Hybrid Cloud: Google+ Hangout Recap

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Alan Bush | September 24, 2013 4:09 pm

I know that it may be hard to believe, but the holiday shopping season is fast approaching. If you have an ecommerce site, or have aspirations to set up an ecommerce solution, you need to start preparing now.

During our Google+ Office Hours Hangout last week we talked about using Magento[1], an open source ecommerce application that can help you with your online sales. I’ve embedded the video[2] of the entire Hangout at the bottom of the post, and you can check out the highlights below (however, you will have to pardon our “pirate patches” – we did it in the spirit of Talk Like a Pirate Day…arrr).

That’s the recap from our previous show, if you are an ecommerce customer or are looking to set up a Magento site, I would highly recommend watching the entire video below. We‘ll be back for our next Hangout this Thursday at 1:00 p.m. CST. We’ll share tips and tricks to prepare your site for increased holiday shopping traffic. You can sign up here[9] to participate in the Google+ Hangout. We look forward to seeing you then!
