Magento 2 Training for Developers
Duration: 1–2 days
Trainer: Andreas von Studnitz or Fabian Schmengler
Content: This Magento 2 developer training helps you to level up to Magento 2 and to successfully work on your first Magento 2 project. A traditional training course comprises the following subjects:
- File Structure of Magento 2
- Frontend Basics
- Module Structure
- Dependency Injection – Introduction
- Overwriting Code via Preferences
- Amending Code via Plugins
- Events / Observer
- Setup Scripts
- Development Best Practices
Structure: In a two day training there is also time to amplify topics such as automatic tests, security or performance.
In a one day training we pass up exercises to save time for questions and discussions. If you prefer to learn in exercises, we recommend a two day training to make sure that both practical exercises and relevant topics can be covered properly. Also, if you don’t have any previous knowledge in Magento 1, we recommend a two day training course.
Magento 2 for Frontend Developers
Duration: 1–2 days
Trainer: Sandro Wagner
Content: Especially for Frontend Developers we offer a training that covers the mechanisms and technologies used in Magento 2 frontend development. During this Magento 2 frontend training you will learn about the following topics:
- File System and the Anatomy of Themes
- Fallback Mechanisms
- Layout XML
- (Custom) Page Layouts
- PHTML & Blocks
- Display Contents with Widgets
- Frontend Workflow and Preprocessing

Structure: Compared to Magento 1, frontend development in Magento 2 is more complex and requires basic backend development knowledge, too. Therefore a one day training for Magento 2 Frontend Developers focuses on knowledge transfer, questions and discussions. If you prefer to learn based on exercises, we recommend a two day training to have enough time for exercises and discussing all relevant contents. Also, if you have no previous knowledge of Magento 1, we advise to plan with a two day training course.

Basic knowledge in Magento 2 backend development is a prerequisite.

What our participants say about the trainings
I really enjoyed your training, it was a perfect overview of Magento 2, a lot of practical examples and a comparison of different ways to implement things, besides that a review of how exactly things changed in regards to Magento 1. After a training I felt right at home during the Hackathon. So thank you very much and I wish you a big success with the training and ever more happy trainees like me 🙂
I thought it was great. Although I’m relatively new at Magento I was still able to take some valuable information from the course, which in turn has helped me gain a better understanding of Magento 2 development.
It was a great job, I’ll be sure to mention it when I meet teams out in the world which need to make the transition!
The training was a great experience. Fabian had the patience to answer all of our questions and introduce us to a modular way of working with dev-ops and back-end.
- Magento certified trainers
- individuelly adjusted training contents
- flexible adjustment to participants’ previous knowledge
- variable duration and location
