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

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

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.

These are the options we give you

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 classrooms

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.

On-demand self-paced training

This training is also available as an On-Demand training: Via numerous video lessons, including accompanying student notes (equalling a book on their own), you'll learn about the topics in your own pace. And when you bump into questions, you can fall back to the teachers guidance.

Fast paced, in-depth introduction to Hyvä Checkout and Magewire. Jisse truly is an experienced and knowledgable teacher who offers courses for small groups of people with enough room for questions and participation of all participants

Frequently Asked Questions

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

The training is only held as a physical classroom when there is a minimum 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. With On-Demand courses (video courses), this number is not applicable.
