The summer solstice is upon us, the equinox that marks the halfway point for 2021.
So what does this mean for the world of the eCommerce sphere? Generally, the first active sales phase of the year is completed, and companies are presenting their plans and roadmaps for the rest of 2021 and the next year. This is the ideal time to start preparing for big upcoming digital sales events and campaigns like summer clearance sales and Black Friday sales event later on in the autumn.
Connecting online with customers is a journey, not a destination. Consumer demands continually evolve as trends, behaviors and technologies change. Balancing a buyer’s experience with the performance — speed to buy — is always a delicate balance to strike, weighing the scaling needs of a web storefront while maintaining its site reliability and security. That was until progressive web apps (PWA) emerged as a popular eCommerce solution.
A PWA has shown itself to greatly help a merchant connect with and provide customers a high quality mobile experience without sacrifice to browsing performance. At Atwix, an Adobe silver solution partner, we have well-worn experience in designing, building, implementing and supporting clients who now leverage Adobe Commerce PWA Studio (formerly known as Magento PWA Studio). We have decided to share some of what we learned. Please read, comment and share your thoughts.

In the past, as a web developer you had to thoughtfully choose your operating system. You weighed personal preferences and experiences with the emerging work you had in front of you and your team(s). This decision was important and also something of an anchor due in large part to tools limitations. The selection process inevitably drove your approach and ability to work across systems and teams (or not). Some systems were more suitable for Linux/OSX, some systems were better bets for other operating platforms. Fortunately, the introduction of virtualization technologies, techniques and tools helped resolve the ‘one or the other’ decision-making challenge. We now use Vagrant, and then we started making use of Docker. This allowed us to move LAMP related objects to and from isolated environments. Ultimately, these emerging tools took the stress out of the formative process of selecting a web development operating system.
