Knowledge is never too much. It is an absolute true, but when you are dealing with Magento, this statement looks even more reasonable.
In this post we continue our tradition of book reviews and open in front of our readers one more useful Magento guide, and, as usual, we encourage you to read the review carefully as at the end of this post we hold a contest for the visitors of our blog.
So, today we’d like to draw your attention to the “Mastering Magento Theme Design” tutorial by Andrea Sacca, which shares a comprehensive expertise of the advanced Magento themes design.
FOUNDER OF 1604LAB
Andrea Sacca is a front end developer and web designer, who creates great appearance for different eCommerce stores, including start-ups and individual shops. Starting his career in 2012 as a web designer for some renowned web agencies, today he is a founder of his own company – 1604lab in Rome.
He is a Magento Certified Front End Developer and recently took part in the Meet Magento Italy Conference, as a speaker.
We contacted Adrea and asked him to share his impressions about this significant for the Italian eCommerce market event:
Andrea: It was a great experience for me. The Webformat team asked me to participate as speaker in order to talk about my book and about the front-end of Magento.
I talked about the importance of the responsive web design and Mobile commerce, and how to create a responsive Magento Theme based on Bootstrap. You can take a look at the slides here.
It was nice to meet a lot of developers there, talk to merchants, and people from the Magento team, such as Ben Marks. As you know, during such events you can establish a lot of new contacts and, possibly, start new business with people from all over the world (not only from your own country).
I think that it was one of the most important eCommerce events in Italy. Italy is often “late” with innovations and new technologies, while the events like Meet Magento highlight the importance of eCommerce and the power of this great CMS. As for me, I have already got many requests for new projects just after my speech, and it is a great confirmation that people want to invest in eCommerce and create new online shops.
I work for a lot of customers here in Italy, and 90% of them use Magento for their eShops. So, I think that Magento greatly affects eCommerce in Italy, as well as all around the world.
aW: Thank you very much Andrea for your view of the conference and the Italian eCommerce market. It is truly interesting and reflects the opinion of the real participant of the local market.
Now, let’s get down to the book review.
