Magento 2 Frontend Development II training

A clear and in-depth explanation of JavaScript in Magento 2

A clear and in-depth explanation of JavaScript in Magento 2

The Magento 2 Theming training part I dives into XML and PHTML. This part II continues with RequireJS and KnockoutJS, two essentially different theming parts in regards of M1. With these JavaScript technologies it has become possible to modify things like checkout, price modelling, shopping carts without core hacks and weird tricks. This training gives frontend developers an excellent kickstart with M2 JavaScript.

This training is part of the following series

so that we'll be able to guide you all the way, step by step

These are the options we give you:

Prepare for certification

Our Magento 2 trainings are not part of the Magento U program. However, Yireo is known for providing training with high quality. Many M2 developers have reached official certification, thanks to Yireo. Additionally, we can supply our own Yireo Training Certificates.

At your place or ours?

Everyone learns at her/his own pace. We provide both in-house training and public training throughout Europe - whatever suits your team best. When 3 or more developers are attending, a custom training is often more economical. Contact us for more details.

You'll get courseware

Every workshop is accompanied with official Yireo coursematerial. Attendees are sent a digital version of this material after the training. It contains slides, comments and references. Additionally, our GitHub repos contain numerous more code samples.

Online training-on-demand

Online trainings are also our training: Via Zoom or Google Hangout sessions, our teacher is able to connect with your team. The benefit here is that the team is able to connect from various places itself as well, timeframes are more flexible. Afterwards, a video recording will be shared with all attendees for reference.

Next level JavaScript programming

The Magento 2 theming layer is all about Javascript: jQuery scripts and dependencies are lazyloaded via RequireJS, components comply to the AMD standard so that HTML DOM and JavaScript modules are separated from one another. KnockoutJS gives additional AngularJS-like twists to the whole, whereas UIComponents combine the whole lineup of XML layout, HTML templates, PHTML templates, AJAX calls, KnockoutJS and RequireJS to glue things together into reusable parts. This Magento 2 theming training explains how you can work independently with these JavaScript techniques and is therefore an essential part of the learning curve of a frontend developer.

Jisse Reitsma

The teacher: Jisse Reitsma

Thus it came to be

When Jisse started with Magento, he already had years of experience programming in Joomla (back in the days when Joomla was actually the #1 CMS - believe it or not). Back then, open source cart solutions were lacking and Magento 1.0 brought a lot of hope.

Quickly Jisse dived into the new architecture: In 2009, he built his first extensions, among which the fundaments of a bridge between Joomla and Magento (MageBridge) and various project-specific extensions (among which payment providers and custom MVC/EAV modules).

A relieve

Over the years, he experienced what most Magento developers experienced with M1: A lot of power, but also frustration. After a couple of years, it no longer was cutting-edge and it barely adopted new developer standards. When the new Magento 2.0 alpha 1 came out, Jisse started playing with it. And he was relieved to see modern tools in its architecture: Composer, PHP namespacing, testability, CLI-driven management, proper design patterns.

Again, after building some modules and dummy projects, the first Magento 2 developer training was given in January 2017 (two months after the official release) and numerous M2 trainings have followed for both backend developers, frontend developers and devops.

Frontend sagas

Currently, with Magento 2 being several years old now, the fuzz is no longer about its backend architecture: It is the frontend that matters. Jisse has given numerous frontend development trainings, where people complain about LESS (and not SASS) being used, loading times to be slow (while in fact M2 allows for enough tuning to make it bloody fast), an archaic combo of Knockout/RequireJS (while they both serve their purpose in regards to backwards compatibility).

PWA is the new keyword. Jisse has dived into React, Redux & service workers in combination with GraphQL and NodeJS tools. He is currently working in various initiatives to help developers embrace the new frontend stack (ExtDN, Vue Storefront, DEITY). Also, he has added Docker and Kubernetes to his vocabulary.

As of yet, it is fair to say that Magento holds little surprises for Jisse. He is your guy to train you or your developers properly in both backend and frontend technology.
