The first quarter of the year is over, and it is time to calculate the results of the Q1 2018 Magento Partners Contribution Reward Program.

 

This is the third quarter since the program started, and by now 50 partners have joined the effort to collaborate on Magento 2 core, including 8 firms who signed up and started to submit various fixes and improvements in this quarter. The total number of merged code contributions in Q1 2018 is 156, most of which were focused on Magento Open Source and the Multi-Source Inventory special project. Participants have shown interest in fixing issues and improving overall coding standards.

 

The scoring criteria for pull requests remains the same:

  • Base 10 contribution points for an accepted Pull Request
  • +50 contribution points for the partner scoring maximum points during each month
  • +30 contribution points for an Advanced PR
  • +20 contribution points for a Complex PR
  • +20 contribution points for a Special Achievement
  • +10 contribution points for Test Coverage
  • +10 contribution points for updating Developer Documentation

We have done an in-depth code review of the Partner code contributions to multiple repositories, including Open Source, Commerce Editions, B2B, DevDocs and Special Projects: MSI, PHP 7.2 Support, Bulk API, and Import/Export Improvements, granting additional points to the most sophisticated solutions.

 

Please congratulate the top performers of the Q1 2018 Magento Partners Contribution Reward Program:

 

1st place: Atwix

 

Atwix is an agency delivering full-service solutions to businesses globally and also a Magento partner with certified developers and deep expertise in e-commerce. Atwix’s competitive advantage is having a deep understanding of clients’ needs and delivering top quality solutions.

 

The team has been working on the Multi-Source Inventory project for a long time, with 3 developers who regularly deliver quality solutions, which has helped speed up the final MSI release. In Q1 the following features were delivered:

  • Implemented the first Source Selection Algorithm, which is used to determine sources to fulfill the order
  • Added support for Inventory Low Stock Report per each Source
  • Introduced Quantity validation during checkout

Atwix took part in hosting the first Distributed Contribution Day on March 26th from their offices in Bratislava, Slovakia and Khmelnytskyi, Ukraine.

 

Also, we would like to welcome Yaroslav Rogoza to the Community Maintainers Team. He joined in January and already provided reviews for multiple Pull Requests in the Magento Open Source and MSI projects.

This quarter, the team focused heavily on the Bulk API open-source project. Comwrap has done extensive background work gathering requirements and actively participated in the design of asynchronous APIs, RabbitMQ integration, and Bulk API status endpoints. As a result, the team introduced the asynchronous Web API module and continue working on additional features.

 

On top of that, the Comwrap team took part in moving the Magento Message Queue and Rabbit MQ integration framework from Magento Commerce to Magento Open Source during the Contribution Day in Kharkiv, Ukraine.
