Drupal Commerce 2.0 Wisdom from Acro Media

If you’ve been following the Acro Media blog, you probably know that the digital agency (and Acquia partner), based in Kelowna, BC, Canada, has a special interest in Drupal Commerce.

So with the recent launch of Drupal Commerce 2.0, it made sense to check in with them.

After all, Acro Media team are core maintainers for modules such as Commerce Migrate, Commerce POS, and a host of others.

Leading up to the 2.0 release of Drupal Commerce, Acro Media had 20 team members contributing a total of 60 contrib credits. In the past 3 months, they’ve been credited on over 270 issues.

They’ve also been publishing content steady. Their aim seems to be to not only to get the word out about 2.0, but to help educate other developers, agencies and current and potential customers.

So here, all in one place, a collection of Acro Media Drupal Commerce Knowledge.
