When Did You First Use Magento?
September 25, 2017
As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we asked our community on Twitter when they first discovered the platform. The answers were awesome!
Some of our community described the event as ‘life-changing’:
2010 when I've moved from France to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil! Changed my life :)— Jonathan Ribas (@_jribas_) August 25, 2017
Magento CE 1.0.19870.4. On 14th July 2008. The day my life changed radically.— Marius Strajeru (@MariusStrajeru) August 25, 2017
Others got involved with Magento for the rich rewards:
I started as the forum moderator in April 2009 hired by @RhondaRondeau for a Taco Bell gift card— Brent W. Peterson (@brentwpeterson) August 25, 2017
Some are approaching their own ten-year anniversary:
Beginning of 2008, So almost 10 years loving the power of @magento— Ray Bogman (@raybogman) August 29, 2017
2008 maybe? I published Magento 1.3: PHP Developer’s Guide in Jan 2010 so it must have been a couple of years. Is it still on the wall?— Jamie Huskisson (@jhuskisson) August 30, 2017
Other developers recalled joining the club:
Back in 2010 when I was hired as a senior Magento developer without any Magento experience.— Sander Mangel (@sandermangel) August 25, 2017
Started in 2008, but it wasn’t until ’13/‘14 that I overcame my introversion & jumped into the community. Twitter hasn’t been same since.— Joshua Warren (@JoshuaSWarren) August 30, 2017
And yes, the anniversary made some of us feel like dinosaurs!
Since 02/2009... that makes me feel old— Claudia Teubner (@Quiricia) August 29, 2017
