In MageTalk Episode 153 we cover Magento 2.2.2(.18.104.22.168.2.2)’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.

- Natural tension between platform and apps in platform ecosystem as it matures – facebook, twitter, etc. Same will happen with shopify
- Marketplace needs work – continuous integration
- Partner program engagement
- MFTF http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.2/magento-functional-testing-framework/introduction.html
- In the FTF you get used to code in PHP and XML to write tests. With MFTF you need XML only! – No need to learn PHP for tests writers anymore.
How many full time ecom developers have actually setup/run their own store
I wonder how many full-time eCommerce developers have actually tried to setup/run their own eCommerce stores in the past couple of years. I'm looking at trying to set something up to make sure I stay empathetic to the non-development side of eCommerce.
