During the month of February, we had the first ever Community Engineering live stream. Moving forward, these live streams will occur monthly to help facilitate two-way communication between Magento and the community. These events will mix demos of projects such as MSI, PWA and MFTF with news from the Community Engineering team, interviews with community members, and a live Q&A section.
On the 17th of February, eLogic hosted a contribution day in Chernivtsi in the Ukraine. The focus of this event was the MSI project. By the end of the event, the contributors created 8 pull requests for the MSI project.
The 21st of February was the date for the first ever Magento Contribution day in Australia. Hosted by Magento as part of the Magento Live Australia event, 13 developers got together to learn and contribute to Magento. 16 issues were fixed during this event. We hope that this will be the first of many events in Australia, and that the community can continue to use their passion by making more contributions.
We have many contribution days coming up, but we would like to highlight first ever distributed contribution day. It will be taking place on the 24th of March with locations across the globe. Currently we have locations in Madrid, Krakow, Khmelnitsky, Kyiv, Nottingham, Buenos Aires, and Groningen, but don’t worry if you cannot make it to a location. You will be able to take part from anyplace with an internet connection. During the day we will have team members available to assist with your development, live feeds from all locations, and of course lots of fun. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.
How to get involved
As always, if you are interested in finding out more about contributing to Magento, we recommend getting involved in the Community Engineering Slack channel (email requests to join to email@example.com). We also have a wide selection of projects currently running. If you are interested in participating in one of these projects take a look at the project overview page and let us know.
