Recently more and more people online bring up the topic of soft skills, its importance at the workplace and influence on the overall hierarchy and mood within the company.
But today I would like to cover its impact on the general productivity and draw a line between soft and so-called “hard skills” and also I would like to dispel a myth of importance soft skills only for managers.
Let’s get back to the origins. The first thing that struck me when I was planning to write this article was why so many people call them “soft” if it takes years to acquire them, which is hard work indeed.

In short, when all the groups of soldiers were trained, all the same, one group was excelled some way. Digging into the process it was discovered that those soldiers were trained a bit unordinary…

Magento provides the Cart Price Rules marketing feature, which allows applying discounts to items in the shopping cart, based on a set of conditions. The discount can be applied automatically as soon as the conditions are met, or when the customer enters a valid coupon code. The coupon codes can be generated per cart price rule via admin panel in Marketing -> Cart Price Rulessection. However, sometimes we need to automate this process. Let’s find out how to create a cart price rule and generate coupon codes programmatically in Magento 2.

In diesem Jahr hat Adobe zum ersten Mal zur Magento Live Europe 2018 in Barcelona eingeladen. Dieser Einladung bin ich gefolgt und möchte an dieser Stelle einen kurzen Abriss über die wichtigsten Themen geben, die während der Konferenz diskutiert wurden. Ich war primär auf der Magento Live Europe, um mir ein Bild von der Zukunft Magentos zu machen, hat doch die Übernahme von Adobe stark an der Strategie und zukünftigen Ausrichtung von Magento gerüttelt. Oder um es mit klaren Worten zu sagen: Das gesamte Magento Universum weiß aktuell nicht, wohin die Reise mit Adobe geht. Und auch wenn keine Panik herrscht, so gibt es doch sehr viele Fragezeichen.
