Magento 2 is an unbelievable foundation & architecture that is used to build advanced eCommerce websites that scale. But it is also one of the most complex, intricate platforms to teach & learn, and getting up to speed in a very short time is extremely difficult.
This course was created to solve this problem with a focused, simplified curriculum. If you are struggling with Magento 2, this course was meant for you. The overarching goal of this course is to make you a productive Magento 2 developer within one week, even if you have no prior experience. It's not an all-encompassing course, but should provide you with a solid starting foundation to mold you into a great Magento developer.
The flow of this course was carefully architected so you only learn one small bite-sized concept at a time. The course is very digestible and easy to follow. You will not get confused going from lesson to lesson, even if you are new to Magento.
Mark is married to his wonderful wife Juliann, and they are the proud parents of twin girls Lily and Brielle. Mark lives in Northeast Ohio and loves eating chipotle burritos, solving Rubik's cubes, driving his 240sx and watching Cleveland Browns games.
Take the analysis paralysis out of Magento development.
Learn the how, and the more important why.
The goal of this course is for you to start to become productive in Magento 2 programming within one week with no prior experience. That doesn't mean you'll know everything after a week, but it does mean things should start to "click" for you rather quickly after going through the course.
I analyzed all aspects of Magento, identified the core "must know" concepts, and tried to present them in a way which is easy to learn. You won't get lost trying to understand 3 unknown concepts at one time. Each topic has been broken down to only teach one simple concept.
Also, no lessons are over six minutes, with most only two or three minutes long. This was done very purposely, so you can remain engaged throughout the entire course and actually learn what you are watching. Don't worry; a lot has been packed into each lesson, even though you can make your way through all of the lessons within a couple of hours.
This is a screencast course, and each lesson comes with full text translation, full inline source code of the code presented in the lesson (as well as a link to GitHub for easy reference), and the ability to post comments within lessons.
"This course should be essential watching for any and all developers working with Magento. It so precisely highlights what it takes to develop stable, scaleable modules within the Magento 2 framework. Just from watching this course again I have picked up better ways to work, because it reinforced practices that I had either not used or ignored. So don't let the title mislead, this is a course for all, even if it's just to brush up on our bad habits."

I just finished watching @markshust https://t.co/kqofDMLZEb and I have to say M2 coding Kickstart is one of if not the best M2 training video out there. It just cemented in my mind the things I do and described them in easier ways to understand. Amazing work.— james cowie (@jcowie) December 8, 2019
