My Impressions on Magento Hackathon in Berlin: Everything Just Felt Right and Comfortable

Editor’s Note: This post is provided exclusively for our blog by Fabian Blechschmidt, a Magento Certified developer, organizer and one of participants at Magento Hackathon in Berlin.

My dreams and expectations mentioned in the blog post about Magento Hackathon in Berlin came true. I realized that it is easy to make Magento hackers happy: give them tables, electricity, Wi-Fi and the list of projects. And the freedom to decide what to do.

What we had and what we’ve done:

– around 2 days of hard hacking

34 awesome Magento developers

– built/extended 13 GitHub repositories. You can get acquainted with all projects here on GitHub.

The Dependency Injection and Magento report by Tim Bezhashvyly and the presentation of Karl Spies about doing Git right are also available.

Magento Hackathon Is Moving to Switzerland. Join Us!

Magento Hackathon in Berlin was a success and we wish you were there. “What’s next?”, you may ask. Are there any places in the world where you can continue grasping Magento wisdom, hack all day long and enjoy the company of soul mates? Yes, and this time we are moving to Zurich!

Join us for the Magento Hackathon in Zurich on March 8-10, 2013, inspired by the spirit of those held in Munich and Berlin. This international event is the first of its kind in Switzerland and aims at everyone who enjoys coding, learning and sharing Magento knowledge.

The Hackathon will gather Magento developers with different skill levels for collaborative projects provided by participants and picked by groups. Traditionally, the group provides project ideas and then splits up into teams to organize the work on their own.

Sylvain Rayé, one of Hackathon organizers, announces the preschedule.

Magento Hackathon in Berlin: Coding like Mad in Just 3 Days

Magento Imagine, MagentoLive, local Magento meetups…They are all great for general audience, interested in Magento this way or that. But what if you are a real coder with a strong desire to learn every single facet of Magento and its PHP base? Then the Magento Hackathon in Berlin will definitely draw you attention.

The first Mage Hackathon in Berlin will be held 3 days from now – on January 11 and last till January 13. aheadWorks is glad to be the part of it and support this event distantly as much as we can.

‘Learning Magento was hard at the beginning. I still find new angles of Magento everyday and it is fun. As soon as you’ve worked your way into it, you can do anything with Magento,’Fabian Blechschmidt admits. Fabian is a Magento developer and enthusiastic organizer of the Berlin Hackathon, and recently I got the chance to have a small talk with him.
