Tadhg started in the world of e-commerce back in 2005. He joined Screen Pages an e-commerce website provider in 2006 and has been developing Magento sites since 2010. Tadhg has helped plan, develop, lead and when needed project manage many online shops for leading UK brands. In recent years he has also been focused on things like “how can we develop better as a team”. In late 2015 he started studying Magento 2 with a particular focus on data migration.
On the 12th of November Tadhg Bowe gave a talk at the very popular Mage Titans developer conference in Manchester. The talk was titled “Migrate Data from Magento 1 to Magento 2”. Screen Pages has recently been involved with a live migration from M1 to M2.
Tadhg’s talk focused on the issues around data migration. It started with explaining what the Magento data migration tool actually is and how Screen Pages has invested its own time to test it (with a clean set of test data). The talk then continued with how best to plan for data migration, what are the main steps involved, and how to install and run it.
Tadhg then took a look at what happened when we tested the migration tool with some real live data, what issues we encountered and how we resolved them. Sometimes a proposed plan doesn’t always quite work out. Data can be tricky. The talk concluded with how a successful data migration was implemented for our client.

In early December many schools throughout the country took part in a worldwide initiative to teach young people about computer coding. Tadhg Bowe who is a lead developer at Screen Pages and has worked on the Micro-Scooters website spent an exciting hour with the year 1 children at Shalford Infant School in Surrey.
During the hour of code Tadhg showed the children the Micro-Scooters website. Tadhg also created a custom built Micro-Scooters page to help the children understand how code works. The children had to validate how many parts were needed for a sparkling new scooter starting with the grips and then the stem, deck, brake and wheels. They even invented some new exciting colours for the future!
The hour of code was a great success. “The children were so well behaved and very interested. The future of code is safe!” Tadhg admitted afterwards.
