MageTestFest is for women too

Written by Jisse Reitsma on November 5, 2017

Lately, the topics of diversity and inclusion have been on my mind a lot. Not just because of Kevin Spacey, but because some personal comments I heard from a (female) friend in the Magento community. And since, I have talked a lot with people on this. Now, if you look at the character that MageTestFest (an international developer event taking place 1 week from now) has, you might get the impression that this event is only a boys-thing. Time to prove you wrong!

Contribution Day on steroids

Written by Jisse Reitsma on October 20, 2017

On November 17th, MageTestFest takes place - an unprecedented developer event with a unique focus - followed up by a Contribution Day on the 18th. And this hackathon is bound to be different too. For various reasons:

Magento involved in MageTestFest

Written by Jisse Reitsma on October 17, 2017

There's little time left before MageTestFest slaps us in the face: November 15th to 18th 2017, MageTestFest is held in The Netherlands. And Magento has a strong presence, even though MageTestFest is not an official Magento event. What is happening here? Is MageTestFest a Magento franchise? Or is something else at play?

Low budget options for MageTestFest

Written by Jisse Reitsma on October 14, 2017

With MageTestFest coming up in only 5 weeks, it is time to make up your minds: MageTestFest has all the ingredients to be the most unique Magento event of 2017. It would be a shame if you missed out. And because this might be a budget question as well, here are some tips to attend this developer event on a low budget.

Pacman and pulling a juan

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 21, 2017

I was just at MeetMagento Poland which was a great event. And one thing that stood out was the note that Kuba Zwoliński made at the conference opening on pacman, a way of including more people. Unfortunately, we pulled a juan as well.

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 12, 2017

Who doesn't know Inchoo? Their blog on Magento development is known to many and recently, the Inchoo team took it up to organize various awesome events. We are proud to welcome them as a sponsor of the unique MageTestFest. Who, what, where?

Byte sponsors MageTestFest

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 6, 2017

No great conference is complete without great sponsors. And we are happy to announce that our first sponsor is Byte, a well-known hosting provider from The Netherlands. Let's see what they are up to and how they enhance the MageTestFest conference of November 17th, 2017.

James Cowie speaks at MageTestFest

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 5, 2017

Woohoo, we have James Cowie too! If you are a bit into testing within the Magento community, without doubt, you have bumped into Vinai and James and we are excited to have both speakers on stage with MageTestFest. So, what does James have to tell you?

MageTestFest has a location!

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 2, 2017

For our amazing Magento developer conference in November - MageTestFest - we finally found a fitting location: Prodent Fabriek in Amersfoort, The Netherlands. Why? Because it breathes an industrial testy atmosphere that fits MageTestFest perfectly. Here's a sneak preview:

Do not depend on window.checkoutConfig

Written by Jisse Reitsma on August 20, 2017

Within the Magento 2 checkout, JavaScript components have access to a variable window.checkoutConfig that contains useful stuff when dealing with the checkout logic (payment providers, checkout agreements, etcetera). However, using the window object in your JS library is a wrong thing to do. How to deal with this annoying variable?

Yireo becomes member of Firegento

Written by Jisse Reitsma on August 18, 2017

If you know the Magento community in Germany, you know about Firegento: It organizes various community events in Germany and it also hosts a Satis repository of composer packages. We are proud that Yireo is now also an official Firegento member! Isn't that weird?

ViewModels in Magento 2

Written by Jisse Reitsma on August 12, 2017

With Magento 2.2 on the roadmap for September, various new improvements popped up on the radar. One of these is the concept of ViewModels, offloading features from Block classes into separate ViewModel classes. But do we need to wait until Magento 2.2 before we can use these ViewModels?
