The DEV TEAM team

In 2021, demand for DEV TEAM’s Magento developers skyrocketed, and they needed to put in place a solution to better train and onboard new developers to the Magento framework.

The typical time to train a Magento Developer to their team, all the way from newbie developer to Adobe Commerce Certified, was roughly 12 months. Their desired timeframe for this process needed to be cut down to 90 days to better serve the needs of their company and partners.

DEV TEAM enrolled their team in an University team plan, which is a complete solution for onboarding and training teams of developers onto Magento.

They started watching lessons which cover learning the absolute basics of the framework with the Magento 2 Coding Kickstart course. After this, they progressed all of the other Magento courses available on the course platform.

Since all course lessons are short & concise, this allowed their developers of varying skill levels to more easily progress through the material, at a pace which was comfortable to each student.

DEV TEAM students utilize Campus, the University-exclusive community platform for Magento developers.
