Facelift for Dutchento, the Dutch Magento community

" From the start in 2008, Dutchento has set the goal of getting more and better Magento shops in the Netherlands. We support the local web shop owners and companies in the use of Magento and help new users to get to know the platform and the community in a simple way. The Dutchento platform bundles as much local Magento knowledge as possible and gives users access to each other "says Guido Jansen, initiator of the community

With pride the team behind Dutchento has seen this goal approaching; in 8 years time, thousands of Magento specialists and Magento newcomers have found each other and numerous collaborations have developed in the community. Dutchento is growing, in numbers, but also in quality. The Netherlands now has web shops and agencies that excel in the world of Magento.

They share this success with the members and allow them to shift the focus to optimizing the platform and expanding the future vision. A vision that has its own identity, its own color, but remains faithful to the original hexagon.

Increasingly important is the healthy and active relationship that Dutchento maintains with Magento and with the Meet Magento Association. This open dialogue gives Dutchento and therefore the members of the community the opportunity to raise issues for Dutch users, but also to work out opportunities for the Dutch market together.

In addition to strengthening international ties, Dutchento is also actively engaged in bringing specialists and web shoppers into contact with various own and supported events; Meet Magento Netherlands, Meet Magento NL Hackathon, Magento UnConference and various local Magento User Groups. They will also play a role this year in the organization of Meet Magento World, the first online Meet Magento.

Essential is the optimization of the website as the core of the community and as an interaction tool. Much attention will be paid to making the affiliated specialists more visible and linking companies to new Magento webshops. The mutual communication possibilities of members will also be expanded.

Yet they want a lot more. And the members too! A recent survey showed that the Magento enthusiasts who use Dutchento still have a number of items on their wish list. And Dutchento says: Challenge accepted.
