Magento User Guide 1.8 released

Written by Guido Jansen in
September 2013

Following the release of Magento Community Edition 1.8.0.0 last week Magento also silently updated it's Magento User Guide for the new version. With 296 pages it's only 5 pages bigger than the 1.7 User Guide but since most changes are "under the hood" and not something to add to the user guide that was to be expected. Good to see Magento releasing the updated User Guides right along the release of the software itself! You can download the 1.8 guide at magento.com.

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.
