Jason Alpert, one of Pixafy’s first employees, became a Certified Magento Developer Plus earlier this year, confirming his expertise as a programmer in that arena, having already worked on dozens of Magento sites during his time at Pixafy. He took a few minutes out for an interview about the process. (more…)
Pixafy has been a big proponent of Magento, using it on some of our earliest eCommerce projects, all the way to our recent launch of Nobel Biocare. As such, we’ve been developing for some time on the platform, but we’re pleased to announce a number of steps that more formally demonstrates our commitment.
First, Pixafy is now a Silver Solution Partner, which highlights our commitment to the growing number of eCommerce partners using Magento’s Enterprise Edition and our continued use of the platform as a whole.
Second, Pixafy now has two Magento Certified Developer Plus employees on hand, verifying their deep knowledge of Magento and the continued commitment to high-quality work. Tong Xie, who joined us earlier this year, was certified in June, while Jason Alpert, one of our earliest employees and a Magento veteran, was certified in September. As part of Pixafy’s continued growth, additional engineers on our team, all of which have spent thousands of hours each working on Magento projects, will also be certified over time.
Pixafy’s clients process more than $25 million in sales annually on Magento installations, a number that will continue to grow over time. We’re proud of our ongoing relationship with Magento and continue to see it as a strong eCommerce platform for customers of all sizes.

Magento is a popular and growing e-commerce solution which provides an end-to-end interface for merchants and customers alike.

On the customer side customers can create accounts to track their purchases, earn rewards points, create wishlists, and invite friends to join the site. However, as simple in presentation as Magento may be, what happens behind the scenes is extremely complex in application. As difficult as it is to master the Magento codebase, it is vastly outweighed by the challenge of training developers who have never been exposed to it before. (more…)
