It's a brand new year, and we are hitting the ground running. Magento has maintained a blog covering commerce, events, partners, and of course our software since 2007. While some of us (Alan Kent, Max Yekateryenko, and myself) have posted technical content to our personal blogs, we've yet to provide a dedicated space under the Magento banner to collect these posts, and, more importantly, to solicit further content from the rest of our team.
Thanks in no small part to the efforts of several team members—especially our Community Manager, Sherrie Rohde—we are today announcing the launch of our Magento Developer Blog. This blog is the place for developer-focused news direct from the source. It is integrated into our forum software, which means that the contents will be included in forum search results—something important given that we have doubled the number of forum members since this time last year (more that 200,000 of you)!
Most important to us—and, we believe, to you—is the ability to easily comment on the posts using your existing Magento login. We encourage your feedback on these posts, and welcome your suggestions for topics to cover. We expect commenters to abide by our forum code of conduct in order to keep the discussion focused and constructive.
This is the first of several developer-focused initiatives which we are delivering this year, with others soon to follow. Expect to read more about these as they are announced here. We are laser-focused on enabling the success of Magento developers, who are the lifeblood of the Magento ecosystem.
Onwards & Upwards, Ben Marks, Chief Evangelist
