January 2020 was very eventful for Inchoo. A team of four went on a road trip to Germany with a few goals in mind. It was a healthy mix of business topics, plans for the future, and some exploration of the things to come in eCommerce in the next several years. Read on to see what we did and what we learned along the way.Read more

We were invited late January to participate in a certification beta testing session for Magento Front End Developers. We couldn’t just take the voucher to some testing centre as we normally do. Instead, we needed to go to a place called Fast Lane Institute for Knowledge Transfer GmbH – Munich.Read more
Hi folks. I was chatting yesterday with a guy from Slovenia. After a few introduction lines, he was surprised to find out that we are from Croatia – his neighbour country. According to his words, he was reading the website for many months, but never bothered to look where are we from. We are Inchoo, four-and-a-half years old company from Osijek, town with population of 100.000 at North-East of the country. Close to Hungary and Serbia. Besides very eventful history, we are nowadays getting recognised by strong software development community. Due to this reason, in 2012, several software companies started the initiative called Osijek Software City.Read more

Recent acquisition of Magento rattles the cage of Magento community these days. The news brought some level of unsettlement to the souls of Magento developers. Some of them switched the panic mode on and even wondered whether it is time to leave the ship.
However, when the dust settled, people realize that not so much wil change. Most important fact is that X.Commerce will not be a platform. It is just a concept that wraps different solutions and technologies together. Therefore, Magento will stay is quite similar shape and goals as it is. In the light of these events, we renewed our partnership program because we strongly believe Magento is and will be the primal eCommerce platform in years to come.Read more
