Magento 2 is around the corner here!

It has been so long in the works, that it seems almost unreal… but Magento 2 is finally about to arrive arrived!!  

The new version of the platform is a real improvement over the predecessor, with countless advances in pretty much every area (check some details here). 
These are very welcomed technological innovations, and we are sure it will allow Magento to keep growing its already amazing presence in the world of eCommerce.

The new version of the platform offers loads of new advantages to merchants, and an even better scalability and flexibility than what Magento 1 provides.

On the other hand, all these improvements require plenty of preparation, especially for the Solution Partners, like us, who will be working with the platform in a very deep way.

Magento knows that, and for that reason have prepared the Magento 2 Trained Partner Program.

This program focuses on two very real needs:

a) How the Solution Partners can learn and practice the novelties of Magento 2, with the right guidance and covering the fundamental aspects?

b) How can the merchants know if a partner is ready to work with Magento 2 in a reliable way?

The program is about getting a whole new skillset, both in the back-end and in the front-end development areas. The result of the training (if successful) is a badge, which identifies the partner as ready to work with Magento 2:

When I say “if successful”, I mean that it has to be approved! The training is not just ‘here, check out these videos’. There is a lot of work to be done, and that’s the way it should be.

The topics covered are not trivial, they are truly fundamental, a necessary condition for a project’s success. Necessary, but not sufficient! You also need a good dose of talent, hard work and passion … and we have all that… so don’t forget to contact us to discuss about your eCommerce needs! ;)

This badge is the result of a lot of work, and it allows us to proudly communicate that we are ready to help you achieve your eCommerce goals, now more than ever.
Magento is raising the bar, and we are ready to go higher!

And speaking of raising the bar, we are not only Magento 2 ready, but we are also collaborating with Magento U to help spreading the knowledge about the platform.

In the context of the Meet Magento conference that we are hosting in December, we are helping with the coordination for a 3 days Magento 2 instructor led training, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

This is a unique opportunity to get deep, hands on experience on Magento 2.

You can’t miss it!
