MageTalk Episode 153 – The “Epancimation” of Mimi

Show Notes

In MageTalk Episode 153 we cover Magento 2.2.2(.2.2.2.2.2.2)’s release – and the guys get down and dirty into the features which make it one of the best (and most impressive) releases of Magento 2 yet. “Dogfooding” leads to increased understanding of problems and leads to better product ownership. Phillip talks about in-house ecommerce directors at solutions partners like Something Digital, and Kalen talks about the importance of brand and how social proof will replace brand.
