SECOND PLACE on Magento 2 Extension Challenge. I got it!

Hi friends,

I’m Blanka, do you remember me? Today I come back not to give you tutorials as usual but a story I want to share with you 🙂

At that moment when getting congratulatory email from Magento, I wanted to scream out that “Yes, I did it, really did it”. Do you know which email I mention? It is from Magento 2 Extension Challenge organizer to inform that I gained the SECOND PLACE in that contest.

Magento 2 Extension Challenge

When Magento 2 Extension Challenge was published

You know, to be a Magento developer, I always update information from Magento, especially when Magento 2 is on the process to be released, which is promised to change everything about ecommerce. I knew Magento 2 Extension Challenge by chance and when reading its requirements, I just thought “Why not join? This is a chance to challenge myself with the knowledge of Magento 2 I accumulated”. Then, challenge accepted! I decided to think about what I would do.

Luckily, I am not alone in this Magento 2 journey

When I told my friends at Magestore, they totally supported me in this decision. I realized that I was the luckiest one in the world. During this time, Jack, Brian, Thomas and David were kind and talented colleagues who helped me a lot whenever I had questions about how Magento 2 worked. Wow, they seemed to be specialists in Magento 2.

For my submission, I chose to develop an extension that shortened the time of converting extensions from Magento 1.x to Magento 2.x. As a result, developers or store owners could easily upgrade their store. Just need a zip file of the module in Magento 1.x, upload it in backend and submit, you can receive its edition for Magento 2.x in a blink. Sound cool, right?

To help you understand more, here are features of this module:

  • Convert the extension file from Magento 1.x to Magento 2.x
  • Save  the  log  file  of  class  which  cannot  be  found (the  storage  folder  is changed in Magento 2)
  • Save  the  class  name  that  is  inserted  manually  in  a  library  for  next converting time

I’m done!

When I finished all and clicked on Send button, I knew that I tried my best in this contest. Whatever the result would be, I was happy for my effort because I learned a lot of things. Not only could I understand more about the great world of Magento 2 but I also realized that I had best friends, best colleagues at Magestore. Things I learned will be useful for my work here.

Finally, I gained SECOND PLACE, the biggest and most meaningful gift to me.
