Intro I have been an open source software user since I first installed Slackware from floppy disc. For most web projects I've self hosted or managed a bare metal CentOS or Debian server.
I have been working with Magento since version 1.4, and it has been my go-to ecommerce platform for many years now. I have used it to build and scale an online store to over £30 million in annual turnover, and it is capable of handling hundreds of thousands of visitors without issue. While Magento can be complex to work with, it is also highly customisable and can be moulded to fit the specific needs of any business. In my opinion, it is one of the best ecommerce platforms on the market today.
