Tech giants like Adobe, Facebook, and Google canceled their major conferences due to this respiratory disorder to increase the awareness for health and public safety.
Each year, community members of different technologies take part in conferences globally. This year’s Magento Image Conference was keeping developers, businesses on their toes as it was themed at the future of commerce industry, and customer experience management.
