Open-Source-Happenings-Q3

Magento Open Source Happenings - Q3 Recap

It remains open season, for Magento Open Source. As a general rule in our eCommerce world, we see Q3 as a calm period. We tend to take much-needed vacations. However, this year we see an absolutely different situation developing: tons of new contributions, lots of merged pull requests. The main reason is not only in postponed vacations stemming from the business impacts of COVID-19.

Much development continued on through Q3. This season we’ve finally got Magento 2.4 released. Countless development time went into processing all the features and addressing all the bug fixes. Those contributions are now complete – we were able to include much in the new release. This publication provides highlights of the release and a quick recap of what we accomplished in the Magento open source world during Q3.

MageNews-October-2020

Atwix MageNews — October 2020

Welcome to the 21st edition of MageNews. 🎃

Being the new editor of Atwix’s monthly news digest — MageNews — is a great honor and responsibility. My hope is to build on the practical value my predecessor delivered. Our goal remains the same — to monitor and surface key drivers and highlights taking place in our incredible Magento ecosystem. We look to provide MageNews in an easy to read format. Ultimately, we want to further community knowledge and engagement by helping inform developers, merchants, and partners across the Magento world.

Let’s start!

Building-Trust-in-a-Socially-Distanced-World

Building Trust in a Socially Distanced World

Trust is key when it comes to just about all of our interactions, be it business or personal. Regardless of how successful a relationship is, trust is always something that has to be built, tracked and maintained.

At its most fundamental level, trust is built one person at a time, at self-consciousness levels. Social distancing and our new work-from-home culture pose challenges when it comes to building trust, especially in new relationships.

This newfound distancing we all find ourselves in also presents larger and quicker opportunities to erode trust, which affects the social capital and resources needed to operate in a healthy and productive relationship.

The Maintainer’s Path – interview with Vlad Veselov

The Maintainer's Path - Interview with Vlad Veselov

Some would say, The Magento community is one of the largest and most active e-commerce communities in the world. It unites engineers and business professionals across the globe. We start this series of articles on the Magento community focused on the inner workings of the community: maintainers, contributors and community engineers. Featuring stories from people who help build the community as we know it, we want to highlight the hidden aspects of the daily routine and make the Magento community even more transparent.

Magento 2 with Docker for Windows and WSL 2

Magento 2 with Docker for Windows and WSL 2

Before COVID-19 cut the possibility of public gatherings, we had plenty of offline hackathons or contribution days in the Magento community world. An essential part of a working toolkit at such events is, obviously, a laptop (there were gurus that wrote the code even on tablets but that’s a different story). And at every table, along with 10 developers with serious faces, you saw at least 7 MacBooks and 3 [something else] with Ubuntu on board. If you are lucky enough, you may meet a dev who uses a Windows-based laptop as a working station but it’s rather a rare exception to the rule.

The growing unpopularity of Windows-based laptops among web-developers in the past has its roots. There was a period when Windows could not provide a toolkit powerful enough for productive web application development. Many developers, who made the switch from Windows to OSX or Linux, never looked back. But during the last few years, the situation with the Windows platform has changed dramatically. Microsoft took the direction of improving the development tools they own (VS Code, WSL) and acquiring new ones (GitHub). We would like to share our recent experience in building Magento 2 local development environment using Docker and WSL 2.

MageNews September

Atwix MageNews – September 2020

Welcome to 20th edition of MageNews. 🎉

It’s been quite a while since we decided to create this digest. MageNews has gone from a simple idea to a full project with a commitment to deliver the most important and exciting Magento news each month.

Our goal is to make this wrap-up useful for every tier in Magento community, both technical and non-technical people, our merchants, partners and a lots of friends from Magento community. A lot of you have already got used to it, hopefully, love it and are happy to be notified about a brand new post every month.

For me, it’s been a tradition now to end my month with reviewing the latest news, defining information and briefly describing what happened. Of course, the best part is the joy from being able to help others to learn more. 🙌

With my recent decision to take a sabbatical and step away from my daily responsibilities we have decided that MageNews must go on! Alex Lunkov, our Business Analyst, will be preparing MageNews for you as of October.

As for me, I’m going to start a new journey and switch focus to other things. No matter what –  Magento will always have a special place in my heart.

Onward and upward, everyone. 🚀

Time-To-Value-With-Magento-Commerce

Time-to-value with Magento Commerce

In today’s world, having an online eCommerce presence is needed to not only attract new customers but to support current customers. This was the reality for large scale B2C and B2B merchants, but is now true for most local and smaller sellers as well. Recent events have accelerated and normalized this business mandate. This rapid transition is not about scale or introducing new sizzle — it’s about developing an online presence that strengthens a business’s ability to survive in 2020 and beyond.
