The program provides individual developers and small agencies with direct access to tools and resources to expand their knowledge and skill set, and to help grow their businesses. It will also accelerate developer efforts to help merchants launch and build dynamic online stores using Magento Commerce technologies.
We created the Magento Community Insider Program (CIP) to broaden the Magento ecosystem to a larger group of developers and agencies to help them formalize their relationship with Magento, expand their skillset, and continue to build their Magento business practices. We have 300,000+ developers in our ecosystem, so the Magento Community Insider Program is a great way for small agencies and individual developers to stand out. We also heard from merchants who would like to work with an individual developer or smaller agency but are sometimes unsure if they’re working with a legitimate Magento developer.
The new program addresses these needs and more. You’ll get direct access to Magento Commerce source code, a cloud sandbox account, and sales and marketing resources.
