Jisse Reitsma - November 29, 2022
End of 2018, I wrote a little Magento module to check upon the dependencies of other modules: The Yireo ExtensionChecker. In September this year, I refactored the module in major version 2, cleaning up the entire logic. And here's a little promotion.
Why not run Magento 2 in developer mode?
Jisse Reitsma - November 23, 2022
It sounds so simple: Magento 2 has a Developer Mode and a Production Mode. And the Developer Mode is there for development, so do not enable it in production. But why?
Faster Magento 2 Integration Tests - a summary
Jisse Reitsma - November 11, 2022

Because of this, making sure integration tests run as fast as possibly is part of their success. In this blog, I'll summarize everything I found myself to optimize things.
Best practices on the Luma frontend for third party Magento extensions?
Jisse Reitsma - November 1, 2022
For years, the theme that most people considered when it came to Magento frontending was Luma.

Magento 2 interconnectivity: gRPC or GraphQL?
Jisse Reitsma - September 29, 2022
When I slowly got to understand to GraphQL, it made me enthousiastic: The graph allow not only for headless frontending but also for connecting backend services (as long as they support GraphQL).
