Every year, Magento publish a list of their top 50 contributors, as a way of celebrating the global Magento community, and shining a spotlight on the . This year, we were thrilled to find out that two members of our team had made the list, which includes Magento Masters like Brent Peterson, Laura Folco and Phillip Jackson.
Better yet, they were 2 of only 5 top contributors from the UK, which is something we’re really proud of.
The two team members in question – Lewis Sellers and Douglas Radburn – have been very active in the Magento community over the past 12 months; They’ve published guides, shared important insights, and helped various members of the wider Magento Community by taking part in a number of discussion boards and forums.Lewis, our MD, alongside Douglas, also set up and ran the Magento Leeds Meetup, which runs every few months. This meetup is designed to bring local developers, business people and eCommerce experts together in an informal, conference-style session so that they could share knowledge about the platform, exchange insights, and generally improve their understanding of the world’s fastest growing eCommerce platform.
We temporarily stopped running the Magento Leeds meetup whilst we relocated to our new offices in Leeds Dock, but we’re planning on launching it soon; using our brand new meeting space to host the monthly event.
We’re also going to be even more involved with the wider Magento community in 2018. A few of our developers have already booked tickets for this year’s imagine, and we’re working on a few interesting blog posts too, so keep your eyes peeled!
