Report from Magento Developers Paradise @ Ibiza

As is mentioned earlier at one of the posts, Tomas, Ivica and me were “the chosen ones” to go to Magento developers paradise conference at Ibiza. So how was it? In one word – incredible. It was paradise in its true meaning.

Some of the members traveled by plane for the very first time so it was interesting to watch their facial expressions during the takeoff. We met lots of great people, including Tsvetan Stoyhev, Thomas Slade from Blue Acorn, Myuselim Myuselimov, Josh from WebShopApps, guys from Magento core team and many others.

Breaking News! eBay Acquires Magento!

I guess that the word is already spread. eBay Acquires Magento and Launches Open-Commerce Brand, X.Commerce. Since eBay and Magento have partnership for quite some time, I believe that this acquisition is not a huge surprise. Roy is happy. Yoav is happy. This seems to be a great thing for Magento Inc. I’ll ask a selfish question: “What does it mean to the companies like ours and what the hell is X.Commerce?”

© by svilen001/sxc

During my time of active involvement with Magento and its community, I’ve seen numerous questions regarding the Magento Trademark, licencing and similar. I decided to sum up some of the questions that I can answer. Should you have any additional questions regarding these matters, I think the best shot of getting it answered quickly is to contact Rhonda Rondeau – Magento’s community manager – who is really responsive to our (community’s) questions.

Teraflex.biz revamp

The relationship with Teraflex started 3 years ago by designing and developing their first online shop on Magento coupled with WordPress. It was a success for both since their “online business steadily increased” over the years and the community got a place to participate with their feedback and content.

That was in 2008 and we just started with Magento who just turned to version 1.0, adapting to the platform, gathering experience and consuming large amounts of coffee. Before than, they had a simple static website.

Varien is now Magento Inc.

While I was checking today some Linkedin profiles, I noticed the fact that some people abandoned Varien. For those of you who don’t know, this is a company that created Magento. I’ll be honest and say that I had a moment of fear since our business is closely tied to Magento success. My worries went away the same second when I clicked on varien.com link. The step is logical.

Where are my geocoins? Landsharkz is launched!

Do you know what is geocaching? It is an outdoor activity where the members use navigational techniques (ex. GPS) to hide and seek containers (called “geocaches” or “caches”) anywhere in the world. Geocaching is most often described as a “game of high-tech hide and seek”, sharing many aspects with orienteering, treasure-hunting, and waymarking. A geocoin, on the other hand, is a metal or wooden coin minted in similar fashion to a medallion, token coin, military challenge coin or wooden nickel. They are usually trackable on the relevant website using a serial number and website address engraved on the coin. It is a little hard to describe the whole process in two sentences, so we’ll get to the point of this article. We present you Landsharkz, online store where you can purchase Geocaching Supplies and Geocoins.
