Recap Meet Magento 2017 Germany

After attending my 10th Meet Magento in Germany (yes I missed one) and coming back to work, I think it is time for a short recap. This years Meet Magento probably was the biggest one in terms of number of attendants (800, according to the organizers). The location was at it’s limits for that amount of people.

Review of the Magento Imagine 2017 from a personal point of view and a frontend perspective

Review of the Magento Imagine 2017 from a personal point of view and a frontend perspective

The Imagine: The Magento event as such! To me as an USA newbie on the one hand interesting because the conference takes place in Las Vegas, to me as a frontend developer on the other hand interesting because you can learn much about how Magento itself, but the community as well – like other developers, agencies and webshop operators – are working with the e-commerce platform and continuously developing it further.

It was the second time that I attended the Magento Imagine. Last year the conference was characterized by the motto „We are Magento“. This year the word „E-Commerce Platform“ stays in my mind.

Use Swagger to generate a full functional Magento API Client

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. It not only comes with a schema, but moreover it is a complete interactive API client as well. A swagger schema is a JSON document to formalize the REST API. Formalized documents have the big advantage that you can process the data with a machine. One idea I had was to create a PHP API for the Magento 2 API. Fortunately the swagger…

Nice to know: Install N98-Magerun via Composer

Nice to know: Install N98-Magerun via Composer

There is a so far merely undocumented installation procedure for Magerun that is extremely handy in project configurations. You just require Magerun within the Magento project and you can then execute it from the vendor’s bin folder:

Afterwards if you commit the composer.json  and composer.lock  files it is a take-away for the whole team. So it is regardless whether you’re running it locally, inside a docker container or a complete different system. After composer install, n98-magerun2 is available…
