Book Description

Magento has completely reshaped the face of e-commerce since its launch in 2008. Its revolutionary focus on object oriented and EAV design patterns has allowed it to become the preferred tool for developers and retailers alike.

"Magento PHP Developer’s Guide" is a complete reference to Magento, allowing developers to understand its fundamental concepts, and get them developing and testing Magento code.

The book starts by building the reader’s knowledge of Magento, providing them with the information, techniques, and tools that they require to start their first Magento development.

After building this knowledge, the book will then look at more advanced topics: how to test your code, how to extend the frontend and backend, and deploying and distributing custom modules.

"Magento PHP Developer’s Guide" will help you navigate your way around your first Magento developments, helping you to avoid all of the most common headaches new developers face when first getting started.
