Next osCommerce v4 demo

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Going to have the next demo on Thursday the 13th of May at 4:30pm UK time. 

It will be a live demo of the current version of the platform, front end and back end. If you've already seen a demo last month, you probably wont find many differences there, but those who have not done it - you're VERY welcome to join. 

Will send a Google Meet invitation to anyone interested - please contact via the Contact Us form on the main website and provide email address to send it to. 

Have a nice weekend!

i think sooner the better getting some kinda demo or repo online to keep people's interest be good for sure. if the migration was to be very complex what gives the new OSC advantage over other carts or SaaS, right?

I was quite hopeful at first, now losing confidence in the project. Communication is not where it needs to be and it seems this might only be a marketing scheme to attract new clients. Just my opinion, hope I'm wrong.

For me, at least until now, the demo is a GHOST. Signed and asked here to see it and no reply.

Are you sure that it exist? 😨

No news, github, not url to see it.... hummmm... 😪

hi All! 

A couple of updates:

1. Demo(s) - there have been a number of demos offered, via Google Meet, of what will soon be osCommerce v4. We have had interested users from various countries connecting, asking questions, etc. Unfortunately very often interested parties would not connect for some reason - we hope they will be able to connect next time then 

2. New version - it is about 3-4 weeks away at the moment, we will be announcing as soon as it becomes available 

3. Documentation - here we need help from interested parties. We have a Wiki-type website but would like to ask for assistance to fill it in. Please contact via the Contact page of the main website if you're happy to offer help.

Thank you! :)

Hope it's alright to provide some suggestions:

  1. Record the demo session and provide the recording.
  2. The sooner people get to see the s/w, repo, and app features the better to find volunteers. For dotcomboomers they'll be thinking what's in it for me, and for millennials they probably will do things for a cause that they believe in.
  3. Wiki type content management perhaps people can submit contents that are pending approval? The thought here was to just make it open.
  4. Read a story about Elastic Search and on how the founder was dumbfounded as it gained traction after it was put in an opensource git repo.

Thanks!

Also interested in any dates. Will be switching my hosting and payment processing over when v4 comes out so don't want to mess with what I have too much now. A recording of a demo if an actual demo isn't available would be next best thing, there's a 99.9% chance i'd never be able to connect to a zoom type thing to see it.

It'll be interesting to see the new code base and the business model.I hope there is a new framework that could draw in new developers. Devs like to work on cool stuffs. There's been a lot of cool stuffs since OSC and Phoneix--containerization, microservices, ElasticSearch, Kafka, Redis, NoSQL like Cassandra and etc...throw all the bells and whistles at it to make it awesome and stood out from the rest. Let's face it moving from OSC or Phoenix to V4 will not be an easy migration given how the original cart was so "customizable" so make it worthwhile. I spent over 15+ years in opensource/startups and am now working at a big publicly traded software company with a 30+ year old platform/code base, and it's been interesting experiencing the company and it's fortune 100 clients who are used to white gloves services trying to adopt opensource. I don't think that the question on "can it be done or how?" has been addressed yet because it isn't easy...ya, I am interested to see how this will turn out...thx!

BTW, "low-codes" is the buzz word now I think...
