Magento Masters - kudos to an awesome community initiative




"A Magento Master ... regularly participates in the community, is a good steward of the brand, helps to create a positive environment, and consistently adds value to the community"

  • Sherrie Rohde, Magento Community Manager

The Master program is an awesome Magento-led initiative to encourage community participation. It recognises and rewards community efforts in thought leadership, idea sharing and innovation.

Magento has a talented team of in-house developers. But it’s the community of individuals from all corners of the world that makes Magento such a powerful platform. Each community podcast episode, each line of open source code shared and each ‘how to’ blog cumulates to make Magento better each day. Kudos to Sherrie and the Magento team for your efforts in recognising the passionate community that powers Magento.

I’m excited and humbled to be named among the first group of Magento Masters. For almost a year I’ve been hiding away in the new office with dangerously strong coffee in hand, glued to Magento StackExchange and looking to crack Magento 2.

It’s a huge buzz to be recognised as a Master. I also want to do a big public shout-out to my incredible team here at Fooman who always manage to keep things running smoothly while I lose myself in the detail of hackathons and community discussions.

A massive congratulations to the other Magento Masters for 2016. It’s an honour to be chosen among such a talented group of developers, evangelists and wicked coders.
