Magento began its journey when a student Roy Rubin founded a Private Company to earn some extra money to support his student life with no particular vision or work focus. The company which he named Varien Inc. was into all type of development work until the team realised the eCommerce platform they were working with had limited scope and features. The limitation of the then prevalent eCommerce platform OS Commerce made the team to think of a new framework for the ecommerce development. First they think of splitting OS Commerce but finally decide to develop a completely new framework and thus Varien Inc. ended up creating Magento. They did everything to promote Varien and their work and get noticed on the top of every search engines until they were noticed and got recognized as the most popular eCommerce software in the world. These days, Magento is used by almost all popular eCommerce sites one may think of and is the highest Googled keyword.
Magento development officially started in early 2007 and in the same year on 31st of August first public beta version of Magento was released. A year later the First general availability release of the software was made public by Varien. In 2010 Varien Inc. Changed its name to Magento Inc. and eBay purchased 49% share of Magento which was officially proclaimed in the next year 2011. Towards the middle of the year 2011 eBay announced that it would be fully acquiring Magento and Magento will be joining eBay’s new X.Commerce initiative. Magento continued to work under the guidance of its leaders Yoav Kutner and Roy Rubin till in 2012 Yoav Kutner left. Gradually Magento got separated from eBay as a separate independent Company backed by Permira funds till the end of the year 2015. Magento started as an Open Source eCommerce solution and till date have held on to its roots, providing open source software versions. Magento came in the popular distinct platforms namely, Magento Professional Edition and Magento Go followed by Magento Community Edition and Magento Enterprise Edition.
