Dive deeper into the Shopware 6 application

With the Shopware Backend Development I course we started building Shopware plugins: Commands, event observers and scheduled tasks. With this follow-up course you delve into the database: Build your own entities, extend existing entities, including a bit of Shopware Administration, ElasticSearch and testing.

Your teacher Jisse Reitsma

Jisse is a familiar face in the Shopware community: He worked together with Shopware to create a series of videos (totalling 24 hours) to help Magento developers on-board Shopware. Besides this, he also worked together with Rico Neitzel to put together an official Shopware training curriculum. And he has contributed to numerous Shopware extensions in the past years.

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.

Jisse gives cool training courses that you can put to good use in practice. Besides being informative, it is also fun to listen to.

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.
