Sprint with us on Commerce 2.x at DrupalCon New Orleans

Three months ago Commerce Guys separated from 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 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 Refocusing on Drupal Commerce as Becomes an Independent Company

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, 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.

What B2B Companies can Learn from B2C Best Practices

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.

Comparing Drupal Commerce & Magento

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. They are often compared like word processors based on line item comparisons of features instead of powerful business growth engines and visible brand extensions that they are. To limit them to nothing more than published feature sets or architectural comparisons is foolish, unhelpful, and often leads companies down the wrong path.

Cutting the Cord - Why choosing an open-source framework is analogous to ditching your cable provider

In today's eCommerce ecosystem, enterprise solutions and the smaller SaaS solutions create liabilities and risk for your business. Both lock your business into a cycle of license (or maintenance) fees and deep dependency on a single vendor to extend the feature set and remain relevant in the fast paced world of technology, Just like Cable TV Providers.

The Revolution in eCommerce

You know It's coming - you can feel it, hear it, and see it - the low but powerful rumbling of change - the next big wave of innovation in ecommerce. Buying and selling online has become second nature and a core part of our lives - yet there is fundamental change underway in how people are thinking about ecommerce and how transactions of all kinds should be woven into the fabric of an engaging online user experience.
