Basics of Magento

What is Magento?

Magento is an E-Commerce platform built on open source technology. It is used to create custom, scalable online shops to suit merchant needs. It is a very flexible platform where we can extend or create new Magento functionalities.

Magento 1 or Magento 2

“To be or not to be”; that is the question.

Magento 2 is better, bigger and “faster” than Magento 1 but, as you’re starting out, you might encounter some challenges. However, that is not the reason not to learn about the platform. Remember that learning new things never comes of as easy – until it’s done. You can always start with basics of Magento 1 and get in the “groove” of Magento 2 a bit later. After all, Magento 1 still leads with the number of online shops and in the end, someone needs to maintain them. It is just important to note that you’ll have to learn Magento 2 at some point. Magento 1 will be supported by 2018 only and it will be crucial that you’re ready for the platform of the future once the time runs out on Magento 1.
