Kalen is joined by Creatuity’s Joshua Warren for this episode on one the new One Touch Ordering, the Magento Community Engineering Program, Magento 2, productizing eCommerce, B2B and the community.
Amazon’s patent on the One Touch Ordering expiring, the Magento Community Engineering Program being set up and Mage Titans in Austin all coincided beautifully for Joshua & the team at Creatuity. We hear the story behind it’s development, the feedback it’s received and the reasons behind their decision to make One Touch Ordering open source.
Phillip and Kalen sit down with Rebecca Troth!
Who is Rebecca Troth? She started with Magento in 2013 as a Junior Developer and introduced herself to the Magento community by means of a Magento YouTube Channel in June 2016. Now the Channel Manager at Ingenico ePayments (Previously Project Manager at iWeb), she is looking forward to getting more involved with the community and having a regular spot on Mage Talk 😜.
Y’all read for this? There is going to be a MageTalk booth at Magento Imagine 2016! Live interviews, news and coverage of the event. Will you be there? Then look out for it!
Phil shares what we found out during the Magento Partner/Sales Kickoff including where Magento have been and where they are going in 2017! (He did clear some of these with Paul Boisvert)
- Cloud first. Magento are pushing their cloud offering to become a rapid development and rapid deployment enterprise platform.
- Age of Platforms – Magento have the youngest platform on the market.
- The partner channel to start to recognise community work more.
- The growth of ship from store.
Will Magento start to eyeball some shipping acquisitions? The group also get onto the Magento development and deployment process along with the issues raised by the community recently.
Magento acquired Bluefoot, a Powerful PageBuilder which has already been given to enterprise partners and is coming for community edition.
There was a new study by IDC on the scope of the Magento ecosystem as a whole:
- 101 billion in transaction revenue
- 4.2 billion in partner revenue
- 280,000 jobs enabled by Magento
2017 is Magento 2’s year!
