It has been more than six months since the last announcement regarding Magento’s commitment to Magento 1. However, the announcement did not refer to end-of-life timelines that were previously announced - creating quite a bit of confusion and questions from the Magento community. Within this ambiguous environment, what should Magento 1 merchants do?
We’ve combined two of our popular webinars to tackle these questions. Join Benjamin Chafetz, CEO of 121 eCommerce, and Carl Pezold, Director Channel Sales at Celigo, for this combined webinar designed to clarify timelines and details of the Magento 1 life cycle that have been communicated so far. They will also compare product capabilities of Magento 1 vs Magento 2 so you can evaluate your options to determine the best transition plan for your business - if it is needed.
