  • Machine Learning - A Magic Bullet in e-Commerce

    In tech Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have been buzzworthy for a couple of years, but the concept is gaining familiarity and arousing curiosity beyond the uber-tech scene fast. And well with reason.

    Bernard Marr, a contributor at Forbes, explains both ML and AI as follows:

    Artificial Intelligence is the broader concept of machines being able to carry out tasks in a way that we would consider “smart”. And, Machine Learning is a current application of AI based around the idea that we should just be able to give machines access to data and let them learn for themselves.

  • Your Magento 2.x as a Single Page Application with 1-Second Page Load

    Constant access to information and information overload causes us to quickly skim sites for info that’s desired and relevant. Stop and think for a second what your personal browsing habits are and where you fall on the impatience scale. Generally, a multitude of tabs are simultaneously open and tabs get closed abruptly if a page is slow loading or irrelevant in content.

    For e-commerce sites, it’s the same and quick page loading is even more important. You’d browse products the same way as for any other info. You’d have an idea what you want or need and make some research for options. Once you’ve decided on a selection of products you are set on a goal - to gain possession of them. The final step standing between wanting and owning is completing your order.

  • Magento 2 Technical Abilities: Bridging the Gap for Merchants

    When I first started poking around with Magento 2 my initial idea was to cover the backend functionality and the improved UI. Even though there's been a considerable modernization to the UI, it only goes so far to describe the actual merchant benefits of M2 over M1. Correction - it actually describes none.

    The real tangible benefits are however all derived directly from its new structure. This all will bring benefits like faster TTM (time to market) and scalability.

  • Data Migration to Magento2 Case Study


    Hello fellow Magentoers :)

    We at OYE decided to make a test migration project to get a feel of what migration from magento1 to magento2 is like. This article only describes data migration, porting of custom functionality and theme will be described later, when we complete it :) The magento2 docs page describes the data migration as a straight forward process, let's see if it is true.

    The first problem was to understand if the migration tool supports moving custom table columns from m1 to m2. After some research, it turned out that it can’t do that. So if your sales_flat_order table has some custom column where you store some data – it can’t be transferred to m2 with the default migration tool functionality. I think this feature will be widely needed and it will appear in the migration tool soon.

  • Magento2 "delivery date" module creation from scratch

    Hi, everybody! I had a chance to get my hands on the latest magento2 and do a learning project. I decided to make a "delivery date" module, because it is a) useful and b) it requires tuning the applications in different areas: using events, plugins, overriding js files, playing with a grid. It gives customer the possibility to choose the date when he wants his order to be delivered. The result that I came up with is a module with "less than minimum" :) features:

    1. The user will see a delivery date field on the checkout and it will use a datepicker widget
    2. Delivery date will be saved in the order
    3. Delivery date will be displayed in the order view in admin
    4. Delivery date will be displayed in the order grid

    This was the first time I met magento2 and I had moments of frustration and "AHA" moments. So now I will try to minimize frustration of other developers :)
