Motivation to Write The Devletter

Prev Next

The Devletter hits new milestone which I am happy to share with you.

Thoughts

Sometimes it is challenging to write The Devletter’s content. Before Tuesday I have enough motivation to sit down and think about Magento 2 topic I would like to share. It does not work for me to just write only because I have to write. I am also an active reader of The Devletter. That is why I think from both sides, myself and a person who reads it.

Background

Back in 2016 I set My Blog Goals for 2016 I haven’t thought about starting writing emails. Moreover, I wasn’t a big fun of receiving emails when someone tries to sell me product or service.

I realised that it is not always a case to sell something via emails. It could also be a set of emails which brings value to people. Especially when it comes to knowledge sharing around Magento 2 platform. It is pretty new and fresh, so I decided to start sharing Magento 2 tips via emails.

The Devletter

Having this crazy idea about knowledge sharing I decided to write my first email with my thoughts about Magento 2. I wanted this email to have something personal, fresh and interesting from the day-to-day life of a Magento 2 developer building awesome eCommerce solutions. So on top of interesting links, Magento and general software development articles.

This is my first The Devletter #1 email header image back on March 23, 2016.

Design and content have evolved since the first email and now it looks more solid and professional. I no longer use space for the header image, just small logo. I decided to have some theme for every single topic I cover in an email. As for now, I like the idea of having different time of a year:

Growth

Beginning of 2017 I was excited to see some interest in what I actually do and say. The Devletter Community hits 200+ active subscribers willing to get more and more information about Magento 2.

This is great because of few reasons. First one: active community members are looking for more interesting stuff around the new platform. In about 18-24 months number of active Magento 2 websites as well as certified Magento developers will be 10x higher than it is right now.

Second one: it motivates me to write even more attractive and valuable tips for all these 200 subscribers. It won’t be simple however as I said, I read it together with everyone and want to have few ideas or tips everytime I receive new The Devletter.

Max with his team of Magento enthusiasts won the Best Magento 1 to Magento 2 Migration Award at the Magento Imagine 2017. As CEO at Pronko Consulting, he is actively working with Magento 2, delivering superior customer experience. As one of the most famous developers on a market and in the Magento Community, he launched Magento 2 blog, Magento DevChannel – YouTube channel in 2017 where he shares his knowledge, experience and the best practices in the Magento field.
