Blackfire sponsors MageTestFest

Blackfire sponsors MageTestFest

With MageTestFest 2 coming up in 2 months time (March 2019), we are extremely proud to have Blackfire sponsor this great developer event in Florence (Italy) with a Golden Sponsorship. Not only that: Blackfire will also participate in workshops and the hackathon. Meet Blackfire:

Meet Blackfire

As a developer, you have come across Blackfire without a doubt: There are numerous profiling solutions out there to help Magento developers debug performance issues - simple toolbars, New Relic monitoring, hard-core XDebug profiling (with XCacheGrind). However, Blackfire takes in a special place, because it combines a great ease-of-use with an affordable price.

Even better, Blackfire includes Magento-specific advice (using specific metrics) and the tools are included on Magento Cloud to allow enterprise customers to troubleshoot performance bottlenecks with ease.

I love Blackfire

Personally, I've been using Blackfire already for years to open up Magento shops to see what is eating them: It has allowed me to detect caching issues, networking lags, evil extensions and unwanted coding mistakes. I think it is a great tool that helps development teams get the best out of Magento.

This is also the reason why I think it is so great that Blackfire participates in MageTestFest v2 in March 2019 in Florence in Italy.

The role of Blackfire at MageTestFest

First of all, Blackfire makes MageTestFest possible by being a Golden Sponsor. You will have the chance to meet and greet the great people of Blackfire on the main event day on March 7th 2019 inside the Odeon Theater of Florence.

Additionally, Blackfire organizes a practical workshop preluding the main conference day, to help you get the most out of the Blackfire performance assertions, CI workflow and much more. Workshop tickets are available at this moment.

And last but not least, Blackfire also participates at the hackathon on March 8th, to help us all make the best use of Blackfire when it comes to analysing Magento issues.

Thank you, Blackfire, for making MageTestFest happen and being so active in your role at this great event!
