We sat our developer, Max Bucknell, down for a chat. We asked the full stack dev to tell us what to expect during his talk as well as his thoughts on future trends in the Magento world and development.
Tell me about your talk at Meet Magento Poland? What should people expect?
What do you see being the trends in Magento for 2017 and beyond?
I think Magento 2 is just starting to ramp up in the market now. We’re starting to see more adoption, more third party modules. It’s become clear to me that the biggest feature of Magento 2 is its API. To me, it’s the biggest and most important change in the platform because now we can integrate more easily. For example, we can build a store front-end that doesn’t necessarily go through Magento, it’s just an app. You can build an IOS, Android app or you can build POS integration. And once you’ve got that kind of flexibility, you’re really looking at taking ecommerce everywhere and the reach of Magento just becomes far larger.
What skills should developers be looking to build on?
