On Saturday 24th March, JH hosted the UK arm of the Magento Distributed Contribution day.
Running from 6 locations Worldwide, developers got together to contribute to the Magento Platform. Here in the UK, we split into groups focusing on security, bugs, and PHP 7.2 compatibility.
We had a great turnout at JH, with 14 attendees varying from veteran contributors to recent graduate developers making their first ever contribution to open source. With great contributions all round.
The event was broadcasted throughout the day on YouTube, with all the locations throughout the world able to communicate with each other via the live stream. It was a great addition to see all the other teams at work.
We weren’t all work and no play. At lunch we put on a spread of arguably the best pizza in the world (Oscar and Rosies), had a few drinks and chatted about the industry and all things Magento with Ben Marks and David Manners, who were in attendance – flying the Magento flag from our Nottingham offices.
If you’re interested in getting involved in future, keep an eye out for our Meet Magento UK Contribution Day running the day before (June 12th) the conference. Or even better, sign up to the Meet Magento UK Newsletter to find out how you can get involved.
