It’s been quite a week for Magento Connect. On Monday, our Official Magento marketplace reached 2,000 extensions. It was such a milestone for our community that we decided to hold a competition around the event, where three winners were awarded within one minute of the 2,000th posting (which was the Home Supplies Store by Magentist).
Congratulations to @expert_magento, @d_n_d, and @christophedavy, with a special honorable mention for @unirgy. These winners will receive a Magento T-Shirt autographed by Roy Rubin, a copy of the highly-acclaimed Magento User Guide, and a sneak peak at some of the upcoming design changes to Magento Connect (which we’ll be blogging more about shortly). The winners were announced on the News page of our Official Magento iPhone App, and on through twitter.
Of course, thanks to everyone in our community for making Magento Connect a success. Early today we reached 2,083 extensions, which is a growth rate of nearly 5% in just 4 days. Hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to meet up in Spain for the upcoming developer’s event!
