Tales of the Magento Adobe Stock Integration. Part I.
The last days of June 2019 were unusually hot for Ukraine. The weather that year decided to follow all possible summer standards: sunny days, very high temperatures, and a lack of precipitation. So it was nice to enjoy a sit on the train near the AC during my ride from Kyiv to Kharkiv. In Kharkiv, I took part in the Magento Meetup. These kinds of events are essential in providing a unique opportunity to share knowledge with the community, improve your skills, and to strengthen friendships.
Magento Commerce Cloud — Starter vs Pro Comparison

First look at Magento 2.4 Click-and-collect delivery
In this article, we review the in-store pickup feature that will be generally available in Magento Open Source and Magento Commerce 2.4.0. Here at Atwix, we highly anticipate this functionality – let us explain why it is important to consider implementing now, more than ever.
Magento Commerce and Open Source 2.4. Release overview
During July 2020 Adobe will introduce a new release of Magento — Magento Commerce and Open Source 2.4. This release of Magento Commerce is a win-win for both admins and shoppers. Customers are receiving long-awaited B2B capabilities that include streamlined purchasing while admins score upgraded possibilities when it comes to customer experience. Magento 2.4.0 beta is already available for partners like Atwix, but the GA release is planned for the near future. As we are approach the General Availability date, we want to share with you what changes to expect in the release.
The open source for Open-source -- a look into GraphQL.
The Atwix engineering team spends a lot of time monitoring, engaging, and contributing to Magento Open-Source projects. As CTO, I can tell you this investment is smart business for any Magento shop to stay on top of ALL that is taking place across our eco. However, within our Magento agency, Open-Source is something very personal to all of us. Managers and developers set aside much time and effort to review, share and contribute. Contributing ensues our knowledge and skills stay sharp, and it is great for the greater community to continually move the eCommerce platform forward. To that end, I wanted to share what we have been seeing, and where we have been rolling up our sleeves and participating – recently GraphGL has occupied much of that time and for good reason…
Speed matters in eCommerce. This statement on its own is common knowledge (or should be). However, maybe less known is the requirement to invest in performance improvements — continually. Think of performance investment not so much as optional, but rather as part of an ongoing merchant’s operating budget needed to maintain optimal user experience (and site owners and all those responsible for managing the site!).

How merchants benefit from partnering with a Magento contributor
Next time you go to the dentist, and you are nervously sitting in the chair, take a look at the walls. You will see framed diplomas and certifications convincing you that you have made the right choice when it comes to who you can trust. You should seek a similar experience when hiring a Magento developer to care for your website. You want to know they are the best. Let us break down what a Magento Contributor offers, we want your next developer experience to be less painful than that root canal.
Magento certifications and why they matter
Can you imagine visiting a non-certified therapist or coach? Likely, the answer is no. Why? Because if you’re putting your lіfe іn someone else’s hands you want someone that you know is an expert. When it comes to your eCommerce business, you should have the same view. To assess and recommend or just to tune and fix your eCommerce website, it’s best to work with a certified expert. Then you can be a hundred percent sure that the person working with you has a trained background with sufficient experience. Seeking this expert out is worthwhile. It puts your company in the best-partnered hands possible. Failure to partner with an industry professional exposes your company to lost time and money.
Top 5 Reasons it might be time to upgrade Magento Open Source to Magento Commerce
Changing a merchant’s eCommerce platform is a mission critical business decision. It is a decision that should not be taken lightly. The storefront platform, in many ways, is a reflection of the merchant. How they came to market. How they position themselves. How they manage their e-business. How they chose to innovate and how they share their passion.
