With holidays just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get some experiments set up to capture more mobile sales.
Lessons learned from the ghosts of holiday emails past
Despite maintaining an open source version of their code base, there were a lot of things about a pre-Adobe Magento that gave a lot us in the open source world cause for — not alarm exactly — but some heavy side-eye. One of those was Magento’s approach to composer. On one hand — huzzah! Composer support! On the other hand — Magento distributes code via their own opaque, credentials required, composer repository. This has a few downsides. First, unlike packagist based packages, there’s no way to quickly know that the packages you get from Magento’s repository match what’s available in […]
Success is in the Numbers
It should go without saying, but social media (especially in recent years) is a powerful tool that both individual entrepreneurs and businesses can use to their advantage. In fact, Americans can spend up to three times more time on social media as opposed to reading their email. More precisely, online users spend 7.6% of their ...

Generators landed back in PHP 5.5 and I’ve mostly ignored them. I had a vague understanding that they were a feature that allowed you to build iterators that didn’t require loading up a huge data structure with all your information. This also seemed to be the gist of most online generator tutorials. So, in the practical world of business programming where jamming everything into a giant PHP array is usually good enough, there wasn’t much of a need to understand generators. So imagine my surprise when I discovered that generators are actually an alternative to linear code flow. Or maybe […]
Are you Measuring and Improving Yours?

The Mobile eCommerce Optimization Initiative has kicked off and Classy Llama is participating! The Magento Community has come together to create and test multiple conversion optimization experiments. The findings of this initiative are both well-timed and helpful for merchants preparing for the holiday season.
So far, this Magento Community initiative has discovered some interesting patterns:
- Adding a Security Icon to the Checkout Button created 17.37% lift in Revenue Per Visit (RPV)
- Auto-selecting the credit card type created a 21.53% lift in RPV
- Adding the PayPal Express Checkout shortcut created an 8.72% lift in RPV in the mini-cart…
If we’ve learned anything from Black Friday and Cyber Monday’s past, it’s that retailers need to be proactive to counter the holiday shopping dominance of eCommerce giants like Amazon.
I just updated my example Magento 2 travis build file to work with the newer versions of M2 coming out of GitHub. This file does the heavy lifting of cloning an M2 Magento repo, running the installer, and adding the composer module you want to test to the project. Travis remains one of those how is this free wonders for anyone doing software development today.
Second release this week. After the M1 version, we release also a new version for Magento 2.
