Cyril Golub_aheadWorksCyril Golub, Co-founder of aheadWorks – “Moving from Projects to Products: How Newcomers Can Do as Good as Veterans of Magento Ecosystem in 2013.

A brief description:

Despite a huge number of vendors on Magento Connect, every Magento developer has an opportunity to introduce his or her own extensions. Development is not that difficult after all; but how to stand out from rival players and turn a product into a stable generator of cash flow?

What strategies do leaders embrace and is it possible to take a significant market share away from them? And finally – what’s the risk of copying someone else’s strategies and cloning third party products?

Peter Samoilov_aheadWorksPeter Samoilov, CTO at aheadWorks – “The Struggle for Time: Mechanization of Magento development on the battlefield.

A brief description:

* Who should think and who should work?

* Why do Magento extension providers need mechanization and how to use it?

* How can one automation save plenty of time to a bunch of folks?

* Continual integration: 1000 and 1 task for CI.

* CI server? Give me 2! Let’s use Remote Agent.

* Selenium? PHPUnit? Implement with caution.

Back from the Netherlands: “Magento Dutch Market Will Grow”

Our guys, Matt Krivoshein and Peter Samoilov, have just returned from the Meet Magento event in the Netherlands. More than 350 Magento enthusiasts gathered together to share ideas, experience and thoughts about the future of Magento project. We were happy to see our partners from Studio Emma, WebShopApps, Atwix and some others.

While Matt was dealing with general questions on how aheadWorks can improve store functionality, Peter, CTO at aheadWorks, was healing Magento merchants and curing their technical problems.

Read what Matt and Peter say about the Meet Magento NL 2013

Matt KrivosheinMATT KRIVOSHEIN, CMO: Unfortunately, there was no Internet available on the first conference day (May 29). However, it didn’t affect us that much. Some of my basic observations:

  • Magento Doctors were the most popular guys during the event;
  • Roy Rubin has disappeared right after his impressive keynote. That’s a pity.
  • Magento team has learned some Dutch words (‘dank u wel means ‘thank you’);
  • Lots of Magento merchants still use CE 1.4;
  • Ede is a very nice town for working – its environment is quiet and peaceful. All attractions are 100 km away – in Amsterdam;

I want to thank Marc Dekkers and Guido Jansen for organizing and taking charge of such an awesome conference, Tom Robertshaw for a well thought presentation, Viacheslav Kravchuk and Karen Baker for keeping us a  good company.

Peter Samoilov

PETER SAMOILOV, CTO: Meet Magento Netherlands seems to become one of the largest events in the EU – it gathers more and more participants every year.

This time I was acting both as a guy at aheadWorks booth and as Magento Doctor at first. I have to say that being such kind of a ‘doctor’ is really exciting: I met real Dutch merchants with their actual Magento problems and helped them out to resolve their issues. A lot of questions were related to performance and store speed, so it’s probably the most troublesome part of Magento.

The only bad thing about being Magento Doctor was that I had no time to attend keynotes at all :).

But if you ask me about my preferences – listening to keynotes or being a doctor and helping merchants – I will choose the second option undoubtedly.

Is Everything Over After the Imagine?

aheadWorks in Las VegasaheadWorks team has been actively participating in the Imagine events for two years in a row. We’ve talked to a bunch of people there and realized – many of them take advantage of that opportunity to build business relations as well as to have fun, relax and stay in Vegas area for a while for some traveling.

Thanks to Magento Imagine, many guests learn more about gambling (which generally is not allowed in the United States ;)), get stunned by the majesty of giant Sequoias, enjoy fabulous waterfalls, and deserts of Grand Canyon…

As for aheadWorks team, Magento Imagine 2013 was absolutely great. We had a chance to communicate with many solution partners about our partnership program and shed some light on the recently released aheadMetricks service and OnPulse.

It was such a pleasure to meet nice folks from On Tap, Razoyo, Classy Llama, i.cube, Rocket Web, Smile, Scandiweb, Inchoo and discuss the idea of free trials for Magento Enterprise extensions. I also send personal greetings to Brent Peterson (Wagento), who turned out to be a giant geek madly in love with Magento and running.

We also traveled a lot and now are happy to share some pics from that ‘Magento-style’ journey. Thank you, Brent Peterson, Laura Boylan (NCR) and Jason Boslow (Razoyo) for your kind advice on what to see. 🙂

We Announce a Game Quest at Meet Magento Germany! Unravel Mystery from aheadWorks

Five days left until Meet Magento Germany in Leipzig! It’s likely you started preparing yourself for the meetup (at least mentally), so the closer the due date is the more excited you get about meeting old friends, drinking German bear and listening to Magento presentations, of course.

Even though we can’t chill with you there (by the way, get used to saying ‘Prost!’ billions of times in Germany), we, nonetheless, want to be sure you’ll have a lot of fun during the event. So we came up with a GAME QUEST for all Meet Magento De participants.

As a motivation for you to play with aheadWorks, we’ll reward with $100 discount on our products everyone who completes the game and finds out a magic coupon word. So you’ll have fun, get acquainted with peer participants, stretch your brain and finally obtain $100 gift discount code. Damn easy, right?

Rules of the Game

When you enter the Westin Hotel on June 3, event organizers will give you bags with sponsor advertising materials. At this point you need to open the bag and pick up the aheadWorks flyer (see the samples below).

Game quest from aheadWorks  Put together   Game quest from aheadWorks

Your flyer will contain the part of the magic coupon keyword (either the first or the second piece), so you should find the missing half to get $100 discount. How to do it?

  1. Approach other attendees and put your aheadWorks flyers together.
  2. If the word you got makes sense, scan QR code.
  3. Apply this coupon code to any extension. $100 will be in your pocket!*

For example, you may get the flyer with the ‘nir …’ word part. When you detect the other flyer with the ‘… vana’ half, you can build the whole word ‘nirvana’ and it will become $100 coupon to apply via QR code.

I won’t tell you how many meaningful words you can compose (hint: not more that 10). But I assure you I beat my brains out to make up decent words and cause you break a sweat. 😉

Good luck and enjoy the game!

*Both you and your comrade can use the same code.

Hirokazu Nishi about Magento in Japan: “I Recommend Starting a Business on Magento Here, but with Caution”

As time passes by, I become convinced that Magento is very similar to Julius Caesar in its quest to conquer the world. Turned out, this famous Roman emperor took up the reins mostly of European terrains, but Magento, it seems, cherishes plans to gain the whole planet.

When a high popularity of Magento in Europe and both American continents is no longer questioned, Asia is still perceived as a tidbit by rival eCommerce platforms. It’s especially true for a tech tycoon Japan.

Common understanding of Magento state in the Land of the Rising Sun is vague. If you also wonder what’s going on in Japanese Magento market, meet Hirokazu Nishi for a brief talk. Currently he works as CTO at Celtic Corporation (which appears to be aheadWorks Official Partner!) and is in charge of Magento Meetup Tokyo organization.

Hirokazu Nishi

Hirokazu, you provide Magento technical support and extension development service in Japan. How did you get interested in Magento in the first place?

H.N.: At the end of September 2007 I found the article about a new eCommerce software. It was an early version of Magento and I felt it would become a great platform. Then I started using Magento.
