A Magento 2 integration testing helper

A Magento 2 integration testing helper

February 16, 2022

In the past, I worked with Integration Tests frequently. In the past few months, my work on Magento modules fell behind a little bit. And instead of just working on new features (and fixing bugs) without tests, I decided to get my tests straight first.

Magento 2 SearchResult or SearchResults?

Magento 2 SearchResult or SearchResults?

January 14, 2022

One thing that has confused me for ages is that in your own custom Magento 2 repository, you can make use of a SearchResultInterface (singular) and a SearchResultsInterface (plural) - both work fine, but which one to actually use? A little writing to copy this from brain to blog.

Magento 2 Luma Essentials on-demand training

January 2, 2022

I'm proud to officially announce the Magento 2 Luma Essentials on-demand training. It has gone live quietly already in December, but as the Yireo Courseware Portal where the on-demand videos are hosted has also undergone various changes, I felt that only now it is time to announce the course itself. For newbies? Nah, even experienced devs will learn from it.
