Making Your Life Easier with the Magento 2 CLI

Presented by Miguel Balparda (@mbalparda)

In Magento 2, the new bin/magento tool helps developers and system administrators with their everyday tasks and reinforces their flexibility. This 30-minute talk shows how those teams can use this tool to streamline those tasks and integrate it into existing automation schema, and offers insight into how to use the tool to boost website performance. This talk will also directly compare the previous set of shell tools to the new bin/magento tool. I will show how to perform identical operations like reindex, flushing the cache, and changing modes with each platform, then highlight how the new tool allows for easier and simpler creation of custom logic, commands, and features.

Private Data and the Full Page Cache in Magento 2

Presented by Vinai Kopp (@VinaiKopp)

The Full Page Cache is an essential part of Magento 2. All modules with any frontend components have to be developed with Varnish in mind, in order for a site to meet performance and scalability requirements.
Caching is easy if all pages look the same for all customers, but what if they need individualization?
The Magento 2 framework provides several tools to deal with this scenario, each providing a varying degree of flexibility and having different costs of implementation.

In this short presentation Vinai will walk you through the steps required to display private data on cached catalog pages in a secure manner.

He will use the most flexible approach provided by the framework, but boiled down to it’s essentials, thereby reducing the complexity as much as possible.

The goal of the presentation is to equip you with an understanding of how private customer data can be displayed fully cached pages.
