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.

What about Vue Storefront Next aka Vue Storefront 2?

The training that Yireo currently provides is based on Vue Storefront 1, the version that was initially developed for Magento 1 and Magento 2. While the VSF team is currently working hard on Vue Storefront Next, which is going to offer support for other e-commerce products like Shopware, Sylius and BigCommerce, our prime focus is still Magento and therefore, these course are focused on Vue Storefront 1. The Vue Storefront 1 suite is still actively developed and supported by the Vue Storefront team.

Does this training prepare for certification?

As of yet, Vue Storefront does not offer any kind of certification. However, they are working hard on making certification possible. And once that certification is there, our training will definitely be adopted to become a path towards certification.

Does this training also include Vue 3?

The Vue Storefront 1 training does not include Vue 3, because Vue 3 is not supported by VSF1. Training on Vue Storefront Next (or Shopware PWA) does include Vue 3.

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.
