The main conferences
The most important event in the Magento world “ Magento Imagine 2019” took place from May 13 to 15 in las Vegas.

Last June, Adobe bought Magento.
During this year, the Magento platform actively developed in the b2b and b2c areas, artificial intelligence analytics and improvement, which gives it an edge over its competitors.
Adobe Commerce cloud
Adobe launched the Adobe Commerce cloud - the fully managed cloud-based version of the Magento platform that is fully integrated with the rest of Adobe’s tools, including its Analytics Cloud, Marketing Cloud and Advertising Cloud.
Adobe is also extending the platform by adding new features like dashboards for keeping an eye on a company’s e-commerce strategy and integration with the Amazon marketplace.
It’s worth noting that all of the usual Magento extensions will work on the Adobe Commerce Cloud, which covers many use cases and makes the platform more attractive to its potential users.
Magento to Hacker One
Magento changes the service to report security issues: Magento used Bugcrowd before, and now it switches to Hacker One, used by Adobe.
Microservices introduce a revolutionary approach to apps: they are no longer a monolithic structure, but a complex system composed of small particles and independent processes which communicate with each other via language-agnostic APIs.
The potential of microservices is huge.This leads to a modular approach to building the system and entails improvements:
- increase the speed of the development process;
- the ability to update the application in parts;
- a small error in one of the modules will not lead to failure, as it happens with monolithic applications.
Magento has released another update - Magento 2.3.1
This version includes:
