Use Swagger to generate a full functional Magento API Client

Magento 2 comes with a nice swagger schema which describes the Webapi. The Magento guys were very clever to choose swagger.

Cronjob performance optimization: Magento 1 vs. Magento 2

Introduction This article is about problems that can occur with Magento cronjobs. The standard way to configure crontab for Magento 1 has it’s limits. The more custom cronjobs  a Magento system has, the more probable the system will face problems considering cronjobs.
