For implementation you always need to stay up to date. As specialist for Magento and Magento 2 backend implemenations with focus on Magento Extension development, our guys are usally not highly involved with frontend interventions. But there are still some and there will be more and more touch points in future.
In the beginning of August in a project retrospective session, wich is a regular scheduled meeting within the agile workflow Netresearch preferably works with, our Magento Team expressed the wish to get some deeper insights into Magento 2 frontend concept. Said and done. Netresearch always encourages further education of its employees to face the current and future challenges in a professional manner. So we take care for it and the 2-day session with Magento Master Jisse Reitsma took place last week at 2017 Aug 29th/ 30th here at Netresearch. The conclusion in advance: It was worth it!
Some course buzzwords we were facing with
- XML Layouts
- PHTML and HTML
- CSS, LESS, SASS
Some feedback from our guys
The 2 day course was structured very clear. In the end everything and as well in that particular sequence we've discussed makes sense in total. Also to refresh and deepen the basic concepts from JS as well as RequireJS and Knockout again, was very percipient in the end. It was fun and to follow quite easily.
I'm sure, for us as longtime developer with a bunch of Magento experience and even for newcomers of Magento 2 development it's precious to dive into the "why" problems in these JS area to become a better understanding of the basic principles.
There are still some, but they are rare. Trainer and mentors who really know what they are talking about. It was fun and profitable at the same time! Thumbs up, well done Jisse. Best course ever I've attended
