About the Book
When you get used to develop on Magento 1 platform you will likely agree with a motto of mines: "there are at least two ways of developing things in Magento the best of which is usually the third".
This book is a collection of development advices resulting from over five years spent on practical Magento development.
Knowing how Magento is implemented is the best way to extract the most out of it; for this reason all the recipes are explained through in-depth analysis of Magento's code base and architecture.
This book assumes you are not a Magento beginner and already know its programming fundamentals with at least one year of continuous development experience.
