The hardest part of Magento? Every developer will give you the same answer. It's without a doubt, UI Components!

Months were spent researching UI Components, finding out all of their intricacies, and then defining the simplest way possible to explain this complex part of the JavaScript layer. If you have knowledge of Magento 2 but have had hardships understanding UI Components, this course will provide you with a solid foundation to build dynamic, reactive client-side components with as little noise as possible.

UI Components are your friend

Learn to build reactive UI Components, simply & without hassle.

More JavaScript pain relieved

This is the second course in the Demystifying JavaScript in Magento series, and is solely focused on learning Magento's proprietary implementation of "UI Components".

This is a screencast course, and each lesson comes with full text translation, full inline source code of the code presented in the lesson.

  • Learn visually

    By watching the instructor program in front of your eyes, you will learn faster than trying to source and read documentation.

  • Full source code

    After watching the lessons, easily reference the source code on GitHub to build out features for your upcoming projects.

Build a real UI Component

What about building a top site banner that pushes free shipping on orders of $100 or more, and that dynamically reacts to shopping cart price changes in real-time?

  • Learn while developing

    Not only will these lessons teach you all about UI Components, but by the end of these lessons you will have a fully-functional, completed module that you can install on any of your client websites.

  • Real, working module

    This "Free Shipping" banner module changes states depending on the shopping cart subtotal, and reacts to changes without ever needing a page refresh.

“Thank you for sharing your knowledge of Magento 2. The work you are doing is very helpful, and helped explain the right way of doing things & hard to understand concepts, all in one place.”

Hi there! I'm Mark 👋

My passion over the last decade has revolved entirely around Magento. Starting with the early days of Magento 0.8, I've had a heavy interest in the Zend and Magento Frameworks, and have been devoted to eCommerce & PHP for even longer (over 20 years!). I've held all positions within many organizations, ranging from junior developer to chief solution architect.

During this time I've spoken at conferences such as Magento Imagine and Meet Magento New York, and my LAMP stack programming expertise has paved the way for me to become a Zend Certified Engineer and Adobe Certified Magento Developer. I love open-source software, and have maintained docker-magento, the most popular development environment for Magento since the release of Magento 2.

I'm married to my wonderful wife Juliann, and we are the proud parents of twin girls Lily and Brielle. I live in Northeast Ohio and love eating chipotle burritos, solving Rubik's cubes, driving my 240sx, and watching Cleveland Browns games.
