In Detail

Magento has completely reshaped the face of e-commerce since its launch in 2008. Its revolutionary focus on object oriented and EAV design patterns has allowed it to become the preferred tool for developers and retailers alike.

"Magento PHP Developer’s Guide" is a complete reference to Magento, allowing developers to understand its fundamental concepts, and get them developing and testing Magento code.

The book starts by building the reader’s knowledge of Magento, providing them with the information, techniques, and tools that they require to start their first Magento development.

After building this knowledge, the book will then look at more advanced topics: how to test your code, how to extend the frontend and backend, and deploying and distributing custom modules.

"Magento PHP Developer’s Guide" will help you navigate your way around your first Magento developments, helping you to avoid all of the most common headaches new developers face when first getting started.


"Magento PHP Developer’s Guide" is an easily accessible tutorial, designed and written to give the reader maximum understanding of the powerful Magento framework.

Who this book is for

This book is written for developers who have previous experience with PHP and PHP frameworks, such as Zend or CakePHP, and want to start developing and working with Magento. Even developers with previous experience with Magento will find the book extremely useful to gain a full understanding of Magento fundamentals, architecture, and overall philosophy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Go-to literature for Magento dev newcomers 9. Juni 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I am pleasantly surprised. Having spent hundreds of hours researching the web, browsing blogs and articles to find solutions or tutorials, reading this book helped tremendously. It does not explain how to setup a Magento system or how to setup a template or new skin, as this is well covered by other guides already and would be expected knowledge as a prerequisite to step into the development realm (the same as php development experience would be). But if you are new to the Magento ecommerce universe, or find yourself limited in reaching the next level in true extension development due to the complexity of Magento’s architecture and lack of guidance, this is the go-to literature I do recommend reading first.

The beginning chapters give a well-structured introduction into the concepts of the Zend and Magento framework, data management and the anatomy of extensions, which is essential when it comes to understand the way the truly complex ecommerce framework works. The book guides by example through setting up a front-end module and subsequently extending it by adding backend functionality.

With this approach the book gives a well foundation for any future development of modules or extensions. For some it will not go deep enough, but it leaves little question for the newcomer about how to approach extension development.

You will also find in the book some useful guide into the API of Magento and its use cases (e.g. managing the catalog through 3rd party systems), showing examples equally for SOAP, XML-RPC and REST. Aspects of Quality Assurance, versioning and distribution of the created components conclude the book.

I found the individual chapters well organized by following a didactical approach, explaining the context first and then delve into the details.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Magento Developer Book By Far 24. April 2013
Von Kevin - Veröffentlicht auf
The Magento community was sorely lacking a good developer book. I am SO HAPPY that a Magento professional has decided to finally write one that actually goes over all the things a new Magento developer would need to know. Before this book came out you had to scrap together various online tutorials and guides to understand Magento. Now there is a quick to read book with great samples of all the Magento basics. Thanks to much for making this book.

Even after paying for the Magento $350 quickstart I felt I was missing a lot of information. This book has the perfect starting guide and will save so many people so much time trying to learn Magento. Thanks for writing it!

You'll see on my blog post: [...] at the end I was very close to paying a few thousand dollars to have a programmer write a decent Magento book, but now that is not necessary :).

A few of the things I loved about this book:

Goes step by step through making a real Magento module, not just some hello world or blog

Teaches about Magento testing techniques

How to properly deploy Magento and Magento modules

Covers the admin grid system - how to set them up for new modules or edit them

Magento layout xml files - how they work

First few chapters go over all the Magento codebase in a thorough manner - get up to speed on what you need to know very quickly. Much faster than going through the 40 hour fundamentals of magento screencast.

Covers how to setup Vagrant - though I already had done this it's great to have a resource there for people learning it and how it will help your development

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great starting point for Magento development 26. Mai 2013
Von Mattias - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This guide is a great starting point for developers with previous programming experience that want to get into Magento Development. There is a lot of information out there about Magento but this guide sets a good foundation at where to expand your knowledge.
Myself I have been working with Magento for about a year but wanted to get a deeper technical knowledge.

I would say that for developers starting out with Magento the best option is probably to read this book first (assuming you have PHP knowledge already) and then once you get the concepts you can move on and get more in depth regarding to what you want to accomplish.

I especially enjoyed the API chapter myself.

At my company we will use this book as the second book for new hires after they have read the Magento Design Guide.

Thankyou mr MacGregor,

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book with meaningful exercises 23. Juni 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Somehow Magento, unlike most other open-source projects was able to build a cadre of high-quality authors who write high-quality books. This is certainly such book! It gives both a big picture of how various Magento pieces fit together, but does it on a detailed enough level that an experienced PHP developer without prior Magento experience can jump right in. And the fact that the book covers the latest Magento version is a pleasant surprise in itself!

If you are in such a category, your first project probably won't be an extension for the marketplace. So, an example of a gift registry fits very well in such paradigm. By leaving out more complex aspects that are relevant when you are developing "for publication", the author was able to keep the size of the book down to manageable 200 pages.

So why 4 stars and not 5? There are just way too many typos! Some are funny ("compromised" instead of "comprised"); some make a good unintended exercise for the reader (the author describes the importance of calling getLoadedRegistry() in "Edit registry", but without setting it anywhere else the example fails); yet others leave with annoying feeling of sloppiness (both '_' and '__' actually work in Magento, and with the reader unlikely to code translations as part of the exercise, it is not clear which one to call - so author's careless mixing of single and double underscores in examples makes for unpredictable results).

Finally, there are numerous links to author's website where the reader is promised deeper discussion, additional exercise, etc. Unfortunately, the materials there are "coming soon"

1.0 von 5 Sternen Badly Written Book, But I am still keeping it 25. April 2014
Von Anup V. Saumithri - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Hers's whats wrong with this book:

1. Nonexistent theoretical background:
Theory is very important for understanding any framework.

2. Cryptic and poorly organized:
Chapters are poorly organized and logical flow and progression is badly lacking.

3. Misses some important concepts:
Where is Magento themeing? Its the most important aspect of any e-commerce platform (customer facing).

4. Inconvenient Solutions:
Much of the examples is based off of Vagrant & Chef. How many times have you heard of it?

5. Spelling Mistakes:
As common as snow in Alaska (Borrowed this phrase from C++ for Dummies :) ).

The author has just two poorly organized chapters on front end and back end development - Thoroughly frustrating to read them.
Not only don't you not learning anything but you have to fall back on Magento tutorial on their website to get any bearings on whats going on.

Bottom Line: Not worth its price tag. It more like a 10$ book. Dont be tricked into reading all the 5 ***** comments first (thanks to Amazon)

But: I am going to keep the book - not returning it. At least it serves as extra source of information when info about Magento is so sparse.

1.0 von 5 Sternen A lot of code that does not work 12. März 2014
Von Francisco Prado Rodrigues - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I have just tried to read and reread. I've put the code from the book and it does not work. I've used the code of the author from the git repository and the problems persist...
