Having just got back from the Magento Developers Paradise in Mallorca, I thought I’d try for a creative summary, here we go.

1

The number of blog contributors I enjoyed meeting in person.

2

The number of wing mirrors involved in my first motor vehicle incident in Mallorca, < 15 minutes after renting the car.

3

The number of Magento-developing souls willing to brave a drive around Mallorca with me, (even after item 2 above!)
