The Mage-OS Association is a non-profit association
Formed by people within the Magento community to represent and further the interests of that community as a whole: Merchants, developers, agencies, and all of the many people supporting and supported by this ecosystem.
Mage-OS Association statutes
As a non-profit organization, Mage-OS was founded with formal statutes that define how the association is structured and operates.
The ideas behind Mage-OS were first shared in an Open Letter about the future of Magento. That letter prompted discussions and action across the community. The letter was signed by 1,641 people that use, develop, or otherwise depend on Magento for a living. Mage-OS brings the ideas of that letter to life.
Our Mission and Values
We want to see Magento prosper

We intent to accomplish
those goals by:
Coordinating and funding the development and long-term support of Mage-OS
Creating quality content that supports the long-term livelihood of the platform

Our intention is to foster the growth and long-term success of the community by taking steps to simplify and modernize the platform, encourage developer uptake, reinvigorate the supporting community, and give merchants the support and confidence they need to choose Mage-OS for their ecommerce needs.
Our vision for the Mage-OS project starts with these key steps:
Hire a CEO or COO to further development of the Mage-OS association and distribution
Launch a grant program to sponsor development of specific improvements to the Mage-OS distribution
Create a business entity to provide merchant support services and bug fixes for the Mage-OS and Magento Open Source platforms
The Mage-OS project is carried by people who, as we put it in the Magento Community “Bleed Orange”. To set up the Board of Directors, we looked for passionate leaders with a long and strong history with Magento who all bring deep expertise and extensive experience in all the required fields to make this initiative work. Key thing they have in common: the drive to move, fast. They set the example and lead Committees to achieve great things and hit milestones every months with the help of talented and motivated Contributors.
Driven by that same passion, Local Chapters have come to life so people can meet in person, share in their own language and help Mage-OS reach way more people.
