In this episode, we sit down and talk with Willem Wigman, the inventor of the Hyva Frontend Magento Development framework.
Phillip and Kalen are trying to do the oft-attempted, rarely accomplished Reverse Podfade.
Will they succeed? Only time will tell.

The difference between waterfall and agile/retainer billing engagements for Systems Integrators.
Women in the Magento community are awesome!
It seems crazy to Kalen that more Magento stores aren’t with a solid, specialized Magento host.
Back in 1999, Phillip had a blog roll, a web ring, and a PayPal link on his site.
Phillip owns 1 billionth of a Bitcoin.
The Jamaican bobsled team from the winter olympics this year were funded by Dogecoin.
PayPal is now accepting Bitcoin! Phillip is going to buy a carpenter’s pencil at Home Depot for his $5 worth of Bitcoin via PayPal.
You can go to City Winery in New York City and pay your bill with the PayPal app.
Some dude writes a crazy article on forbes that WooCommerce is a better and safer choice than Magento. Phillip posts a scathingly true, epic comment.
eBay is spinning PayPal off as a separate public company. Kalen thinks the sky is falling but Phillip reassures us that it’s no big deal.
— Roy speculates that Magento will be sold off. The heck, bro?
— DHH says “Ebay is like a foster home for tech adolescents who upset their industry and then didn’t know where to go. First Skype, now PayPal.”
Extension of the Week: Granify – which is a service that helps to drive sales by detecting customers that are getting ready to bounce and popping up some kind of notification to them based on what objections they may have to purchasing.
Homework for developers: For every site that you go to, copy and paste the price outside the browser to try to get a popup to come up.
