NE Magento Meetup July 9 Meeting Notes

Magento is moving forward, more slowly than expected, on certifying Magento Developers. To be "Gold" certified, four staff IT engineers must pass the Magento exam, independent of the size of the organization. Magento's certification is for both Community and Enterprise versions. Magento is also moving to certify "industry partners" who develop the software extensions that work with Magento. For example, this includes the companies who developed MailChimp and Avatax. Now Magento is validating extensions and we should expect to see fewer companies specializing in writing more validated extensions for Magento. Some of these companies include Aheadworks, Mageworks, Matrix, etc. Participants noted that the Enterprise edition is likely to become increasingly divergent from the Community Edition in the future.

We discussed the new Google announcement that "shopping" product feeds will become part of paid search this Fall.

We discussed tax related extensions and software for Magento. As public policy moves to tax e-commerce sales, merchants will need to track their sales by the tax rules for each type of product and locality in the "tax nexus".
