Going to MageTestFest on a budget

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 23 Jan 2019

Starting with a disclaimer: The reason why I write this is not that I believe sites running on PHP 5.6 at the end of 2018 is a good thing. I don't get it. It feels sloppy. This blog serves as a means to investigate why people are still running PHP 5.6 and to see if we can convince them otherwise.

Reflecting on Reacticon

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 16 Dec 2018

Finally, I had time to reflect on Reacticon. Or Reflecticon. This PWA conference already happened two months ago. And life has been busy since. But Reacticon still serves as a landmark for the changes in the Magento ecosystem. It was experimental, it was different and it (hopefully) shows the path towards a new frontend. A New Hope.
