A couple of years ago I have had a call with the Magento Marketplace team about the quality of the Magento 2 extensions submitted. There was “TOP Quality” badge assigned to modules in order to recognize best in class implementation and quality.

Once attribute is added as part of address it should be rendered during checkout process for shipping and billing forms. Afterwards, value should be stored as part of an order.

My first thought about this was like “Hah, this is a simple task, I will do this super quickly”. But in reality it appeared to be kind of complex once you start doing it.

Have you ever considered to start with Magento 2? There are a lot of content, blogs, videos about Magento 2 with practical tutorials and how-to articles for developers.
