What breaks when upgrading to Magento 2.3.0

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 25 Nov 2018

Magento 2.3.0 is about to come out. And I've heard from many developers that they are not sure if they want to upgrade to this new version, even though it brings so many cool new features. Here is my personal view on what kind of things might cause issues when you upgrade to Magento 2.3. Hopefully, it helps you decide how (and when) to benefit from this great new release anyway.

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 22 Nov 2018

Is Magento PWA ready yet?

Is Magento PWA ready yet?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 15 Nov 2018

I get this question a lot, so thought it would be a good idea to write something down. While people often ask it as a yes/no question, the answer is not straightforward. Not because of PWA, but because the question is wrong. Or if you are too lazy to read: PWA is ready ... but first, you need to learn how to start.

Magento 2 Knockout to be deprecated

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 6 Nov 2018

Last week, MeetMagento New York took place and Anton Kril (Magento Director of Architecture) casually mentioned that the current Knockout-based frontend would be deprecated in favor of the new PWA frontend. It stirred up some things in the community. People were shocked. My reaction: Well, ... why be surprised?

What makes Reacticon different?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 23 Sep 2018

Last couple of years, the number of Magento events world-wide has increased dramatically. Many people say there are too many events. However, Reacticon was sold out in March 2018.

Summer of coding

Summer of coding

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 18 Aug 2018

While the heat is striking down on Europe and many are sitting at the pool to chill, my summer is all about coding. I was looking forward to a summer without travels (because I had those earlier this year with dozens of conferences) and with time to work on pending projects. Here is an overview of my summer of coding.

Why is Magento 2 LESS compilation so slow?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 7 Aug 2018

It has been the frustration of Magento 2 frontend developers for years already. And it has surprised me that so little has been written about it: Compiling the default LESS code of Magento 2 is slow, easily taking up to 8 seconds. But why?
