It was great to hear from these leaders first hand and interact with them.

These days Enterprice edition getting huge attention. 1.13 version performance evaluation by Jimmy Duvall Head of Product, Magento showed huge improvement in performance compared to Previous versions.
Magento 2 is going to the next big thing in Magento. As per the projection it should be ready to lauch by 2014.
For quality extension developers there is good news. Magneto is doing some good house keeping in Magneto connect- the Magento extensions market place. Last year they removed 2500 extensions from Magneto connect for inferior quality of the extensions.
For partners also there is good quality screening happening from Magento. They focus on quality of partners and donâ€™t allow every one to become partners. In other words those want to become a partner need to prove quality of the solutions and capability.
Magneto certified developers crossed 1600 mark and it is great to see more people are taking interest in getting certified.
