So much is going on all the time with Magento that it's easy to lose track of what new content is available in the Magento world and where to find it. I'll be posting semi-regularly to help flag new and interesting content for you. Our big initiatives over the last couple of weeks have been to update and refresh the Knowledge Base and to kick off our new Summer Webinar Series, so let's start there.
Knowledge Base Relaunch
We've updated and refreshed the Magento Knowledge Base and are consolidating all of our Magento knowledge sources into it to make it the hub for all your Magento knowledge seeking.
We have some great articles to christen the new Knowledge Base. Alan Storm has written a nine-part "Magento for Developers" series to help introduce PHP developers to Magento's architecture and approach to customizing and extending Magento. You can check out the first three installments in Alan's series:
- Magento for Developers Part 1 - Introduction to Magento
- Magento for Developers Part 2 - The Magento Config
- Magento for Developers Part 3 - Magento Controller Dispatch
In addition if you haven't already seen them, we have updated instructions for Magento installation and a walk through of the Magento theming changes introduced in CEv1.4 and EEv1.8:
Summer Webinar Series Off and Running
We've also kicked off our first-ever series of training webinars as our Summer Webinar Series. These are getting started webinars designed to help new users get up to speed with Magento more quickly. These have generated a huge amount of interest and we're really excited about this program and how we can continue to build it out going forward. If you haven't already signed up, there are plenty of sessions still to come.
Recordings of this week's sessions are available at:
So that's some of what's new for now. Watch for regular updates and, as always, feel free to contact me directly with your thoughts and feedback ().
