Magento is famous for its community. It cannot be otherwise, and the free version is named Open Source for a reason. Not only the Magento development team invests massively in the platform, but also a global community of merchants, agencies, developers, system integrators and other people just interested in e-commerce future contributes to it. The fact that Magento is being maintained and developed by thousands of people around the world makes it unique in its kind.

Distributed Magento Contribution Day in India

If you’d ask me what was so special about the Contribution Days and why they boosted Community Engineering success, We have a few points for you:

  • Contribution Days facilitated by both Magento Community Engineering Team and local partners, which helped involve and engage developers.
  • Magento Engineers are coming prepared for each particular event and had a number of issues on hand, which they proposed to solve.
  • Having Magento Engineers accessible during the day helped quickly resolve upcoming issues, as anyone could ask questions and get answers in real time.
  • There was a sense of urgency that persuaded participants to finish their pull requests within the day, just like with hackathon projects.
  • And of course, spending a day developing Magento shoulder-to-shoulder with experienced Core Engineers was a great motivation for first-timers to start contributing… And many hooked up!

Wagento from Ahmedabad decided to try a new concept and co-organize the first ever Distributed Magento Contribution Day in India. To make this idea a reality we teamed up three Magento Partners – Codilar from Bengaluru,  DCKAP from Chennai, Netsmartz from Chandigarh, Virtina from Kochi, Appseconnect from Kolkata and Solwin Infotech from Surat. All these companies are known for their significant contribution to Magento each quarter.

The first ever Distributed Magento Contribution Day is going to happen on 19th of May, Come to us on 19th May to contribute to Magento 2 functionality and to work side by side with Magento 2 Core developers.
