Innovations in the Magento Ecosystem

Hi! It’s MagentoLive UK 2017, and I’ve just delivered a presentation on innovation in the Magento ecosystem (video available soon), and I wanted to say a word or three about it here on my blog.

Our developer community is no stranger to ingenuity, and at Magento we work tirelessly to produce world-class functionality and a platform which places enables the community’s innovative spirit. And wow, do you all create some amazing things atop the Magento platform. For example, see the botman.io integration which was built during a hackathon, or see Meanbee’s Alexa skill to find a Magento order status.

While my travels give me broad exposure to much of the novel & interesting projects out there, I’m aware that many more things are being created than I am aware of. I’m therefore making a request of you all: show me your creations. Tell me about your future-forward projects which blend Magento and other tech, apply Magento in novel ways, or… whatever feels novel & inspiring. Bonus points for open source projects, though it’s not a requirement.

You can send project/site links & descriptions to me at ben@magento.com.

  1. Hi
    I have a website and we use Magento , last may 2017 my provider tell me that he has received a security patch from Magento which has to be install in my website .. I got the bill from my provider for 12 hrs of work for updating and correct some security avenue
    here my question,, What are your comment to pay up to 12hrs of work to do the patch

    1. Hi Pierre, it’s possible that it takes 12 hours, or more, or less. It all depends on the size of your codebase, the customizations, and the integrations in place.
