The Drupal Commerce 2.x development process has been one big adventure! Over the last 2.5 years we've accumulated 2,000 code commits in multiple repositories from over 70 contributors at dozens of agencies. With last week's release of a stable Commerce 2.0-rc2, we've started preparing to celebrate the full release with parties around the world.
Our plan is to release Commerce 2.0 on Wednesday, September 20th, just in time for us to show it off at DrupalCon Vienna. On September 21st, we are coordinating a series of release parties at the offices of a variety of contributing Drupal agencies, including 1xINTERNET, Acro Media, Actualys, Adapt, Blue Oak Interactive, Circle WF, MD Systems, Wunder, and more.
With over 1,500 sites reporting usage and a growing number of high quality case studies, we can all feel proud of what we've achieved together. Many of these projects directly contributed to the development of core and other essential features in Commerce 2.x, including promotions, coupons, shipping, etc. We've created a Drupal Commerce 2.0 party list and showcase that we'll be updating as we go, and we invite you to get in touch to be added or to find a party near you.
The release parties will give you and your team an opportunity to review the important new features and capabilities Commerce 2.x offers out of the box. We'll provide basic slides covering those topics, and we invite you to add to them for your part to reflect on your agency's experience and involvement with the project thus far. (e.g. What Commerce 2.x sites have you launched? How did those projects go? What parts were contributed back? etc.)
Any other ideas? Leave 'em in the comments and help spread the word!

Three months ago Commerce Guys separated from Platform.sh to refocus the business around Drupal Commerce. Even as a three-person team (we're now four - welcome, Doug!), we worked hard to dedicate Bojan completely to Commerce 2.x in anticipation of DrupalCon New Orleans. As I discussed in the most recent DrupalEasy podcast, this resulted in great progress both for Commerce 2.x and for Drupal 8 itself. (It also kept us near the top of the most prolific contributors to Drupal. : )
While we're preparing to present the latest in Drupal Commerce in our session at 10:45 AM on Thursday, we're also getting ready to sprint on Commerce 2.x the full week from our booth. This will be our first opportunity to jam on code as a full team since our spinout, and we'd love to have you join us.
Look for us near the permanent coffee station (intentional) beside Platform.sh and Acro Media, our delivery affiliate in the U.S. whose partnership and vision for enterprise Drupal Commerce have been invaluable as we've rebooted our business.
If you'd like to get up to speed on the current status of development, we recommend the following resources:
Naturally, we're happy to help anyone begin to contribute to Drupal 8 / Commerce 2.x. Bojan has mastered the art of integrating developers from a variety of agencies of all skill levels into the development process so far. For an espresso or a Vieux Carré, he may even train you, too. ; )

Commerce Guys has long been a leader in the development of e-commerce websites using Drupal, with our flagship Drupal Commerce project running on over 60,000 sites. Over the last several years, we have also developed and launched a second generation Platform-as-a-Service for web applications, Platform.sh. Platform.sh is now becoming an independent company led by my two partners, Frédéric Plais as CEO and Damien Tournoud as CTO. As the remaining founder, I have acquired Commerce Guys' Drupal Commerce business and am succeeding Fred to manage the company as its President / CEO.

B2B eCommerce is growing. Fast. In fact according to one Internet Retailer article B2B online revenue will hit $1.13 trillion in sales worldwide by 20201. This is outpacing retail eCommerce significantly and is creating significant opportunity for manufacturers and other B2B companies to invest in online sales and marketing technology to better serve their clients’ demands. There are a number of factors in today’s business environment that contribute to this critical need to invest in better, more integrated web technologies.

Much ink has been spilled about which open-source ecommerce platform is the “best.” Most comparisons perpetuate what is typically an easy (but usually incorrect) way of understanding these two platforms and whether they are a fit for your business
