You are not alone.

You're most likely here because you've had some trouble picking up Magento 2. Been there, done that!

When I started learning Magento, I was horribly confused. I tried watching the video courses at Magento U, reading the DevDocs, reading blogs... but nothing would stick.

It just all wound up being a mess of random, unmemorable info.

It took me years to become a proficient M2 developer. Afterwards, I thought there must be a much better way to quickly & efficiently onboard developers to Magento.

So, I set out to develop the curriculum I wish I had when I started. The result is M.academy: super confusing topics, broken down into small & easy to understand lessons, all in one location.

With time, I eventually developed my own simplification framework, so just about any PHP developer would be able to learn Magento. To me, the game will always be simplifying the complex, getting you to that "aha!" moment as quickly as possible.

Now that you know why I created M.academy, are you ready to start learning with me? Start by browsing the courses. Have questions? Don't hesitate to contact me or ping me in the LiveChat.

Our team has found the resources at M.academy really useful, particularly for upskilling and onboarding new team members. Our team is fully Magento focused and we find that Mark does an awesome job at providing really pertinent Magento resources, and we really appreciate it.

I'm from the Philadelphia area, and have been a web developer working with Magento for 3 years now. Until M.academy, I was confused & frustrated most of that time. Mark clarifies the underlying principles and design concepts of Magento so well, that a dev with limited experience can have a positive impact on Magento projects quickly, and feel confident that he/she is learning best practices from a Magento ninja :)

Mark is one of the best Magento teachers out there! And you can find high-quality Magento dev content for both Junior and Senior Magento devs at M.academy.

I'm Chris, CTO at Devteam Outsourcing Inc. We are a Magento Development Agency based in Manila, Philippines. We used to train new Magento developers from 6 months onwards. With the help of M.Academy, we have reduced the training time to 60-90 days. The courses and lessons are structured perfectly according to the needed knowledge using module by module, from low complexity to the highest. Within 60 days of enrolling in the University, not only did multiple DEV TEAM new recruits understand the inner workings of the Magento framework, but they were also able to achieve their Adobe Commerce certifications. PS. With great community too! via Campus

The M.academy courses are indispensable if you are working on Magento 2. I have been helped out through various features on many projects, multiple times, after reviewing Mark's material.

I am a Magento 2 Developer from Afghanistan, probably the only Magento 2 developer in the country 😄. I found Magento difficult to understand, as it was the first platform I worked with after college. The complexity was overwhelming. But the University has content of great value, which can help you really better understand things. It is much easier to work with Magento once you know the flow. M.academy provides a lot of value, the courses are well structured, and the instructor is amazing.

I started the University without any knowledge of Magento, and within 8 months took the expert Adobe Commerce Frontend E710 Certification, and passed! I can say that I got the most complex questions right (JS/KO/UI Components) because the course teaches these concepts very well, and in a simple way that is easy to understand. Everything you need to know is in the University, so I highly recommend it.

My first experience with Magento was with first-line support for Magento 1, and soon I realized how big this e-commerce platform is. I thought it was too old & complicated comparing other platforms, but then Magento 2 came out. I really like it the restyle and started to understand the huge potential it has, and wanted to learn more. But the documentation was very poor and confusing, so I decided to look for some courses. I first tried with Udemy, but I wasn't satisfied so in the end, and then I found out M.Academy. The University is very helpful and for every question, I always get an answer in a short time. The courses are amazing because they cover nearly every aspect of Magento and if something is missing, for sure Mark is already thinking about adding a new course on that topic. I really like how the courses are structured, they are split into short videos so that you can easily review the parts you need the most, and they really teach you something that you cannot find in the documentation.

M.academy has been great for on-boarding our developers. Courses are well organised and up-to-date, and have really helped fast-track getting new starters working effectively with Magento!

Hi! I'm Piotr from Poland and have been working as Frontend Magento Developer. I was working in Magento around 3 years before I started taking courses at M.academy. The courses helped me better understand Magento, and after practice, understand the Magento checkout and Knockout.js. Before M.academy I watched few courses about Magento 2, but none explained the material clearly. I recommend M.academy for every beginner and anyone else who wants better their skills in Magento 2.
