With this transaction Adobe is extending their product and service portfolio into digital commerce. It will be interesting to follow how Magento products will be integrated into the Adobe world. Magento relies on active developer and user communities worldwide. The free Magento Community edition is one the fundaments of Magento’s success. It can be expected that Adobe has a clear understanding what Open Source means and how to deal with communities. Magento’s spirit of “contributing and sharing” will inject Adobe’s Open Source activities a major push.
In this context the setup of the new Magento Association is an important step for helping Magento communities and supporting their contributions to the Magento ecosystem. The already started transformation of Meet Magento Association into the new association provides the ground globally for involving developers and merchants.
