Magent 2 observer or Plugin?

Jisse Reitsma - February 9, 2018

Within the Magento 2 architecture, there are numerous ways of changing the behaviour of the original code. Dependency Injection allows for tricks with types and virtual types. However, the three main ways of modifying original code are preferences, observers and Plugins.

Second time Magento Master

Jisse Reitsma - February 7, 2018

I'm proud to have been announced as a second time Magento Master - again in the same category Mover. Thanks so much, Magento, for giving me this title. It helps. It helps moving developers even more.

Is PWA really the next thing?

Jisse Reitsma - February 7, 2018

Now that Magento has announced Magento PWA Studio to be upcoming, more or less simultaneously with the release of Magento 2.3 (which focuses heavily on making PWAs possible in the first place), the market is on the move. Is PWA really going to be the next thing? What is it all about?

Reacticon - a conference to prepare for Magento PWA

Jisse Reitsma - January 18, 2018

On March 16th and 17th, it will be time for yet another great international Magento developer conference: Reacticon. This time, the sole focus will be on the upcoming frontend changes: PWA, PWA Studio and its usage of ReactJS. Let's see what this event (that will take place in Eindhoven, The Netherlands) is all about.

Goals for 2018

Jisse Reitsma - January 15, 2018

The year 2018 has already started - and my first 2 weeks of this brand new year were a blast. But I felt that it was a good idea anyway to come with a write-up of what kind of goals Yireo has in 2018. Because we have many.

MageTestFest was awesome!

Jisse Reitsma - December 3, 2017

It has been already 2 weeks - time flies. But I felt it was still a good idea to share with you my (and our) thoughts on MageTestFest - the Magento developer conference we organized November 15th to 18th. Because it was awesome!

MageTestFest is for women too

Jisse Reitsma - 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

Jisse Reitsma - 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

Jisse Reitsma - 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

Jisse Reitsma - 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

Jisse Reitsma - 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 ZwoliƄski made at the conference opening on pacman, a way of including more people. Unfortunately, we pulled a juan as well.

Inchoo sponsors MageTestFest

Jisse Reitsma - 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?
