What is Omnichannel Retailing? At Magestore, we internally define it as: “Omnichannel retail is a business model in which all existing channels become completely integrated to offer customers a seamless shopping experience. This Omnichannel retail strategy is empowered by centralized data management, which means that the distinctions among channels, both physical and online ones, are blurred.” ...
Usually you don’t jump on a plane with your friends and go to Asia to have some great weeks of living, working and traveling in the region. It was my first time of working from this far: a 6-hour time difference with our Ukrainian office, a tropical climate and a whole bunch of other differences like food, traffic, religion etc.
What really surprised me was the fact that we did manage to have some really productive weeks out there. Surely, I knew that we would be able to work from there since Atwix is a distributed company and you can work from anywhere, otherwise, I would not go. Still this was my first experience and I was amazed by the opportunities, which remote work gives you.
I put together some advices, which helped me work productively. They might help you do some great work while traveling, which I believe is only for better.How to start your trip right?
The first country we visited was Vietnam. Important to know, this was our first week…

How do we know if our social posts affect our SEO? We’ve been told it does, we’ve been told it doesn’t. And with Google’s ever-changing algorithm, how are we supposed to keep up?

I first saw a version of this talk (from @ellotheth) at PHPPNW in 2015, and it’s the first thing that made git rebasing make sense to me. Too many rebasing tutorials are so busy selling you on the benifits that they gloss over what’s happening to repository. Gemma’s talk not only dives into what a git rebase actually is, but does in a straight forward, gentle way that avoids a lot of the computer science machismo overdoes (or outright bluffing) that you find from other tutorials/polemics on the subject.

The only point of contact your customer has with your online store, is the designed interface. Ever wondered exactly what they think of it? Long gone are the days when the design was purely a visual discipline. It shifted into a responsibility, where designers are also to be valued for their understanding of the product being built. Design doesn’t just paint the building, it builds the stairs to an overall better usability and collaboration of everyone included. It is necessary to update our processes with thorough understanding of end users, colleagues and stakeholders to make responsible and risk-reduced design decisions. Change through user testing is what keeps the design process relevant and competitive.
In a single sentence, we work to make incremental user interface and user experience changes based on usability test results and actual user feedback. This process ensures we’ve improved your online store’s usability, not just with our knowledge of…

Given Magento 2’s enterprise ambitions, it wouldn’t surprise me if most stores are routing their transactional emails through a seperate (or a series of seperate) email systems. Because Enterprise™. However, if you’re sticking to Magento’s default email system for the password reset, order thank you, sign up, etc. emails, then you might want to check out Daniel Sloof’s Custom Email Theme extension. This extension allows you pick any installed Magento theme and have Magento use it (instead of the Blank theme) for transactional emails. It’s odd to see this sort of fuctionality missing from Magento’s core more than two years […]
We published a new version of Magento 1 Version of n98-magerun.Changelog
In the past, there was a big challenge to keep a package-based PHP project up to date. We had sort of package managers like PEAR and PECL, but frequently they caused more challenges rather than provided a handy possibility to install and manage packages quickly. Fortunately, the dark age of the mentioned managers is history now, as the Composer comes to fix difficulties. Composer has been improved with every new version, and many modern platforms/frameworks like Symfony, Laravel and Magento use Composer as a part of their systems.
Composer allows you to declare a list of required packages, their dependencies and to automate the package installation or to make an upgrade process easier. But, honestly, the package manager configuration and functionality might not be easy to understand especially in the beginning.
Composer has two types of configuration files: composer.json and composer.lock. The JSON configuration file is included in the main…
Progressive Web Apps, or PWAs, have been around for some time, but only lately it has become a buzzword. Everyone is talking about it, but is it just a fad, or a future of the web?What is a PWA?
Progressive web apps are a hybrid between web pages and native apps. The application type attempts to combine features offered by most modern browsers with the benefits of mobile experience. But underneath, PWA is still just a website. It can “become” an app if user wants to use it that way. So if user returns to the website, using supporting OS and browser, he will be prompted to add the website to the home screen. If he decides to do it, he can use the website as an app later on. If not, the website is still reachable through the browser, and still with most of the benefits that make PWA’s great.
