A select number of innovations from this round will have the opportunity to present their solution LIVE on the keynote stage
Back when I still had some hope Magento 2 would be the same sort of open-source-for-everyone platform that Magento 1 was, and I was working my way through writing the Magento 2 for PHP MVC Developers series, I was simultaneously developing pestle, my command line tool for generating Magento 2 modules. As time went on I realized the Magento specific commands were buried in pestle’s UI, so I started breaking them out into their own namespace # old command name format pestle.phar command-name # new command name format magento2:command-name magento2:generate:command-name Unfortunately, these command names didn’t match my original articles, and […]

Whenever a company releases something that’s crazy expensive (like Apple’s new starting-at $6,000 MacPro, $5,000 monitor, and $1,000 monitor stand), I think of this almost 30 year old marketing strategy video from Steve Jobs recoded during his NeXT computer days. This was one of those of those random videos that changed how I thought about the business of software and computers. Before this video I assumed that companies were trying to build the best general purpose thing they could to sell to the most people possible. After I saw this video (and ten years of running my own modestly successfully […]
The Portland Business journal has a short story on the local (Portland, OR) Treehouse layoffs. This quote jumped out at me. However, [Ryan] Carson said the company has learned that the $25-a-month product is not “the most effective way to empower people to get jobs in tech in the future.” Which — doesn’t surprise me. Developing this sort of content is expensive and you’re competing with a lot of individuals giving things away for free or running solo-entrepreneur businesses. There’s also no reason for folks to stay subscribed for long once they’ve landed that job. (I’ll spare you my side-eye […]

Highlights from another amazing event
One of the challenges in learning PHP’s C based internal APIs is finding clear and clean examples to learn from. The C extensions that ship with PHP and pecl are old, often worked on over the years by multiple engineers with no single coding style, and contain all sorts of — let’s call it pragmatic and clever macro BS — that keeps things working across multiple major versions of the PHP engine and the multiple operating systems that PHP supports. Perhaps that’s all old C programs — but irrespective of best practices, the code that ships with PHP isn’t the […]
It’s easy to let your eCommerce site’s strategy around Customer-Generated Content (CGC) fall from your list of top priorities. But there are some great reasons why you shouldn’t.
Our research shows that more than 75% of shoppers were less likely to buy something from a website that lacked Customer-Generated Content like five-star ratings and reviews. Just about the same number of shoppers said high-quality ratings and reviews, customer Q&A and product photos were at least somewhat influential in their purchase decisions.
A constant stream of product reviews is also helpful for search engine optimization (SEO). The…
For Magento 1 users considering a move to Magento 2, this overview provides guidance on functionality, expected costs, and timelines to help you decide how to approach your migration off of Magento 1 and when you should kickoff the project (hint: sooner than later).
When Gardner acquired a large competitor with many sites, they found themselves split between two dated platforms. With more than 1.8 million SKUs across 30+ B2C and B2B websites, they needed a partner that could handle unifying their massive catalogs and lead them through a major platform upgrade.
Gardner chose Classy Llama because they wanted a partner with experience in complex development and migrations. Based on Gardner’s experience with the Magento 1, they decided to have Classy Llama unify their websites on Magento 2, a platform that could handle both B2B and B2C selling equally well.
Since completing the project, Gardner’s marketing team can now launch new B2C and B2B websites without any server configuration or development changes. Inventory…
