Check the details

A quick-paced but thorough coverage of Magento 2 frontend development

Magento 2 theming allows for a lot of flexibility. However, this requires you to understand various concepts like theme inheritance, XML layout and Block programming. With our training, you will get all the information you need to customize and extend your own theme.

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.

Optimize themes independently

Magento 2 theming is complex but very powerful: Instead of making a mess with HTML and PHP code, the Magento layout allows you to define structures before building them, resulting in better performance (provided your environment is properly tuned). The layout comes with pieces of XML, PHTML templating but also the underlying Block classes. Our Magento Theming is split up into 2 different parts: With this part I we'll give you the ins and outs of how theming works and how you can apply changes. The training covers XML layout and PHTML templating. On top of this, we show the best practices of theme development, like working with taskrunners and CSS preprocessors. As a followup on this training, you can also follow our Magento 2 Theming Part II which is about JavaScript (jQuery, RequireJS, KnockoutJS, UIComponents).

Remote online training

This training is given online via a Zoom hangout. Additionally, you will find digital courseware (slides plus notes, links and code samples) via your Yireo Account. This is much more than just a simple video training. You will attend a live training with all of the benefits of remote.

Besides Zoom, a remote Yireo training also makes use of HTML/JavaScript-based slides (actually written in a custom React component), Google Docs for additional notes, cameras pointing to the teacher plus another camera for a whiteboard and online git repositories for code samples.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is a minimum number of attendees listed. What does this mean?

The training is only held when there is a number of attendees. This number is usually 4 but sometimes we bring this down to 2 or 3. This minimum number simply means that if a class is not "full", either you get a refund or your ticket is transferred to another date.

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.
