Magento is a powerful ecommerce platform. With customization—writing your own modules and leveraging popular design patterns—you can make it even better. This course shows how to create rich, interactive, and personalized ecommerce experiences and save time on development using custom modules and the most popular and useful design patterns for Magento 2. Instructor Sourabh Modi shows how to create a custom module step by step, from creating the registration.php and module.xml files to adding a new page to the ecommerce site. He also shows how to use the Interceptor, Publish-Subscribe, and Factory Design patterns to declare plugins and inject personalized customizations, and explains how to display data from a database with the Magento ORM. In chapter four, Sourabh reviews additional Magento customization techniques, such as preferences, plugins, and proxies.
