Shopware decorators only on interface?
Jisse Reitsma - May 22, 2023
During a Shopware training session, I heard an experienced developer say that you could only create a Symfony service decorator for an interface and not a class. Is this true? The answer is no. Here's a write-up of how decorators work.
Blue Green deployment in Magento
Jisse Reitsma - May 18, 2023
To me, the concept of Blue Green deployment was familiar because it is part of Shopware. So I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Magento 2.4.4 also started to include this concept. And then it got quiet. What is it and is it useful?

Jisse Reitsma - May 2, 2023
Following the success of the Magento Academy in March and April, we are excited to announce the Shopware Academy in June. The Academy will run for four weeks, with two lecture days per week, homework, and a surprisingly low price that makes it a no-brainer for both novice and experienced developers. And the best part? It will be taught in English.
Sponsoring the Dutch
Jisse Reitsma - May 1, 2023
Early this year, the Mage-OS Nederland association was founded to facilitate the Magento community in The Netherlands. And weeks ago, we decided that the Yireo event MageUnconference Netherlands (June 2023) should be placed under the same flag. And to make the association work and to finance the unconference, we need funding.
Hyvä at the Magento Academy of Yireo
Jisse Reitsma - April 23, 2023
We have kickstarted seven weeks ago a new concept: A Magento Academy program to teach newcomers how to develop with Magento. And week 6 was just finished with a focus on Hyvä. And there were some things that I found interesting to share.
JetBrains Gateway for Magento development
Jisse Reitsma - April 12, 2023
While training Magento and Shopware developers, I've been exploring various products to enhance the course. I came across JetBrains Gateway and asked myself whether it would allow for developers to start coding without installing the application first.
Should your Magento shop use ElasticSearch or OpenSearch?
Jisse Reitsma - April 3, 2023
In 2021, Elastic - the company behind ElasticSearch - announced a license change: From the Apache license to a custom Elastic License (ELV2) and a Server Side Public License. From open source to closed source. Which leaves us a question? Which should we use within Magento?
A MageUnconference NL - Yireo-style
Jisse Reitsma - March 27, 2023
Signups have already come in, first sponsors have arrived, venue has been booked. However, still, I have the feeling we didn't get started yet with the real preparations for MageUnconference Netherlands 2023. Why? The mojo was not yet in. But it's coming. O sure, it is coming.

Jisse Reitsma - March 12, 2023

We have been there for the ride, but I felt it was time to explain what kind of ride it has been. And to look ahead.
