look no further than Magento U!
Magento U offers a tremendous amount of knowledge distilled into either a 5-day course (for Developers) or a comprehensive 2-day course (for Theming). These courses are taught by Magento professionals with practical experience implementing the system for Enterprise use.
"We wrote our first module on day one and I got to know more than enough to get on with my work in the office. We now know everything there is to know about how Magento works and if we don't know about a specific work flow, we know how to find it in the core code. Also, we were taught by two brilliant instructors who came from a programming background instead of being "just" teachers which made it possible to ask them about anything and they knew either the answer or the way to find it." -- Frontend Developer, London, June, 2011

Magento developers and designers are flocking to the training, learning more than they even expected, and really taking their skills to the next level!
Don’t let the name fool you – our “Fundamentals of Development class really covers the essential core of developing in Magento. Here’s what one experienced Magento developer had to say from our recent course in Berlin.
"I got so much more than I expected! Much more knowledge, much more examples than I would have hoped for, and very good instructors that helped each time I needed."-- Developer, Berlin
Our Los Angeles class is sold-out and well under way, but don’t worry if you missed it. We are offering training from Magento every month across the U.S. and in Europe. Be sure to check out our course schedule.
Learn how to customize Magento websites to look and function the way you want them to! Learn Magento's templating system, understand best practices for Theming in Magento, and more!
HURRY! We will be in Los Angeles June 23 - 24 offering "Core Principles for Theming in Magento". This is especially designed for people who want to quickly (and correctly) design websites built on the Magento platform.
One recent participant said:
"I have a deeper understanding of how the core modules couple with Magento, and how to override their default behavior. I'm also able to roll my own theme at this point." -- Frontend Developer, New York Theming course.
This is a MUST-ATTEND event for any front-end developer or designer looking to quickly take their skills to the next level!
After two successful sessions in Chicago and Paris, Magento Developer training returns for a sold-out course in LA! From June 6 - 10, LA will host Magento U for the second time this year, but this time, it's standing-room only.
The wildly popular course has not only exceeded Magento's expectations, but has surpassed even the highest of students' expectations.
Now, I can create extensions, extend core modules the right way, locate Core modules quickly that I would normally have searched a long time for (I was doing several things incorrectly prior to taking this course). The Developer course exceeded my expectations in every way possible.
Check out our newly updated course schedule to see when Magento U will be in a town near you. You don't want to miss this.
Beginning today, Magento U is holding the hugely-successful Developer course in Paris! Developers are meeting this week in the great city of Paris to learn all things Magento.
This is our sixth developer course offered thru Magento U, and we are asking participants what they’ve learned from this course. Here’s what a few of our recent Chicago Developer participants had to say:
I will be able to address the required code customizations to fulfill our unique business solution requirements, this course will also help me scope and plan our projects. I may have been able to do this before attending this course, but I'm certain that it would have taken substantially longer to implement without this course! – Developer
Without a doubt, I got an in depth view of the Magento programming methodology, core programming concepts and best practices. –Backend Developer
From the course, I got a great understanding of the whole application, and a deep understanding of configuration files and how they relate to the whole.—Backend Developer
