Third-Party Themes and Extensions Are at Risk
Magento Imagine 2016 has wrapped and it appears that everyone survived! Albeit a little bit tired and a little less money in the bank, it was otherwise a success and a great time! The theme this year was "We Are Magento" and it was embraced by all who attended. This was Magento's first Imagine as an independent company so it was exciting that they celebrated the diversity, creativity, and shared passion of the thriving global community of engineers, entrepreneurs, investors, and inventors—from the trailblazing merchants who know exactly the kind of customer experience they want to create, to the technologists and innovators who help them realize their vision. Magento made some important announcements about how Magento Commerce continues to innovate to support this global community. Of course Magic Johnson wowed the crowd Tuesday night, and the parties are always fabulous, but here are other key highlights. Enjoy!
