A quick-paced but thorough coverage of Shopware 6 backend development

Shopware 6 offers a solid codebase, with its code being based on the Symfony PHP framework, that is easily extended and customized. This PHP backend developer training gives a kickstart into bundle development, not only with the basics (like a CLI command and routing) but the advanced parts as well (decorators, entities, etc).

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.

A crash course by Yireo is like to be Neo learning Kung Fu

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.
