As a Magento Business Solution Partner, it’s our policy to train our developers to be Magento certified. With Magento 2 now our preferred solution for new ecommerce websites and with a number of large builds already launched/underway, we’re training our developers to add Magento 2 to their Magento 1 certifications.
With Magento just releasing their front end certification, we got our Lead Front End Developer registered straight away. We’re pleased to announce he passed first time. Adding this to Absolute’s recently acquired Magento 2 Certified Solution Specialist accreditation.
The new exam is largely scenario based, covering creating and customising themes to tailor solutions to customer’s individual requirements. This new approach requires a deeper understanding of the system than it’s Magento 1 equivalent, covering both Magento Open Source and Magento Commerce.
While there are many ways to develop themes, working with a Magento Certified Business Solution Partner ensures your Magento solution keeps upgradability in mind, and follows best practice. This is key to keep solutions compatible with future updates and security installs.
The future looks really interesting for Magento Front End with Progressive Web Apps (PWA) and ‘Headless’ Magento CMS on the horizon. As one of only 43 Magento Business Solution Partners in the UK, we are ideally placed to help our clients take advantage of these new and exciting technologies.
