Solidus Digital Conf 2020 | 23-25 Sept 2020
Hello folks, and welcome to our first edition of This Month in Solidus!
As you may guess from the name, this is a monthly blog post we'll be publishing with news from the
entire Solidus ecosystem. The goal is to keep you in the loop about what's happening and make sure
you take advantage of all the latest opportunities Solidus and its community provide you.

A big thank you to Davide Di Stefano, Michela Frecchiami and everyone else at Nebulab who's helped

guided tour of some of our favorite features of the platform. It's still very much a work in
progress, but we invite you to take a look and let us know what you think. Shoutout to Sean Denny
from Nebulab for leading this!
We shipped some exciting improvements that had been anticipated in the
Q1 roadmap update:

relevant. Thanks a lot to Jared Norman from Super Good Software, Edwin Cruz from MagmaLabs and all
the other contributors who helped us with the spring cleaning!
It's been an exciting month in the world of Solidus extensions, with a ton of progress done on our
