Written by Guido Jansen in
April 2018

Magento today announced the formation of the new Magento Association.

For nearly a decade, Meet Magento has organized and hosted Magento-focused events around the world, bringing community members together to learn, share and collaborate on commerce problems. The first Meet Magento was organised - by me - in Januari 2009 and the 10th edition will be organized this year on June 1st. Today Magento announced that it will partner with the Meet Magento Association and the entire global Magento community to create a new Magento Association. The Magento Association will be dedicated to fostering and supporting technology projects, community events, training and education, and online collaboration. Magento will work with the Community to finalize the structure and strategy to launch the new Association before the end of the year.

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.
