At the end of 2015, Magento launched v2.0 of the e-commerce platform. Magento powers some of the largest online stores, and boasts an impressive $100B in revenue through the platform!
Also, since the launch, there have been significant efforts by Magento to improve the developer community and experience. With over 6,500 certified developers, and over 200,000 active developers and users across 34 countries and six continents, Magento has postured itself as a staple e-commerce platform for mid-size and enterprise level retailers and B2B customers all over the world!
In this talk, David Stillson will be showing us the basics of the framework, some good design patterns to know about, and a rough overview of how routing and rendering work.
He'll also demonstrate how simple it is to get Magento up and running in a dev environment, and together, we'll build a simple module!
Special thanks go out to our sponsor, ERi Consulting, for providing pizza - come hungry! ( http://www.ericonsultingllc.com/ )
We also have a JetBrains PHPStorm new user license to give away at the meeting. Considering the saturation the product has in the community - your chances are pretty good!
