There is a strong Sherrie Cher theme to this episode. IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME… I would not offer to do these show notes for free.

The guys first talk about the popularity of the Magento Community Forums, the great work Sherrie Rohde is doing and the sheer size of the Magento Community. It’s pretty awesome.

Commerce Hero is going strong and is picking up momentum. Kalen talks the ups, the downs and learning from experiences.

Phil surprises Kalen with the announcement of a new podcast he has started called Merchant to Merchant where they record roundtables of Merchants to discuss issues that are specific to their industries and regions.

The eCommerce Hall of Shame is back! Phil shames a vendor that, no matter how much he tries, will not let him unsubscribe from emails.  Also, their logo is really dumb but they did make Phil’s feet hot.

Are retargeting ads annoying? Kalen contemplates turning them off for Commerce Hero. Kalen then shares a few of the Commerce Hero job listings and the guys discuss the cost of living differences between locations.

MAGE TALK LIVE IS HAPPENING AT MAGENTO IMAGINE.

Kalen talks about a new feature he has added to Commerce Hero after speaking to Andra Lungu of Bitbull. Andra is one of the organizers of Mage Titans Italy and, in an effort to diversify the speaker panel, was looking for a way to find the female professionals on the site. The gender filter did receive a little bit of negative pushback but overall the feedback was good.

Now, go outside.

Phil & Kalen (Phalen) get re-acquainted after a break in recordings before diving into the most recent controversial community topic that is ‘Code Shaming, inaugurated by Raphael Petrini’s tweet about a new idea for Magento extension reviews and audits. The guys hash out the clear divide in opinion and that very fine line that is between developer elitism & protecting customers. Is it fair to publicly disgrace a developer or company for mistakes in their code by giving feedback that is unsolicited and potentially harmful to their business? Phil airs his views, his own personal experience with when your trying to be helpful vs boosting your own ego and the best ways to genuinely help.

Thanks to some great timing, versions 2.1.3 & 2.0.11 were released just 3 hours before this recording & so Phalen discuss these new releases and MageTalk becoming the medium for reporting on both the frustrations and delights that Magento cause the community.

Something pretty nuts: “There are several thousand Magento 2 stores live and in the wild now.”

Next up: A hearty welcome for James Zetlen the new Frontend Architect at Magento; a question: “How frequently do you composer update, Phillip?”; installing Magento 2;  some very interesting PPs (Phil Plugs); website usability, accessibility and compliance; and virtual reality arcades.

The show was wrapped up with a chat about recent twitter polls by Kalen:
