This morning, Magento Inc. announced their new product 'Magento Go' (formerly known as 'Stratus'), as an addition to the current Magento product line including Community, Professional, Enterprise and Mobile at the first worldwide Magento Imagine event in Los Angeles.

Magento Go will be Magento's software as a service (SaaS) solution for retailers looking for a hosted e-commerce solution, much like Wordpress.com is a hosted blogging solution. You 'rent' the softwafe a pay for it with a monthly fee. There will also be a Magento Go Platform (Platform as a Service or PaaS) solution so developers can also work with Go and create extensions from it through OpenSocial and OAuth). Magento Connect will also get a relaunch to support Go. Great to know, is that extmensions made for one Magento version, will also be compatible with Go, so no need for time consuming/expensive addaptions for this new solution. It will (probably) be available to the public within a month and Magento is giving away 1 milion dollars worth of product accounts.

This is a bonus episode with Emily Robinson (Senior Data Scientist at Warby Parker) en Lukas Vermeer (Director of Experimentation at Booking.com). In her earlier session that day, Emily said that real progress starts when you put your work online for others to see and comment on which in this case was about Github. Someone from the audience wondered how that works out in larger companies where a manager or even a legal department might not be overly joyous about that to say the least so I asked Emily about her thoughts on that.
