A couple of nights ago I presented at the Magento HQ for an event by LAPHP. The event was a brief overview and demo of intro to Magento Extensions which I covered and was followed by an open Q&A and a discussion on Magento Extensions in general and best practice. Yoav Kutner, Magento’s Founder & CTO, also joined us and gave a very interesting overview of the history of Magento and how it came about. If you don’t know it yet, Magento was born out of frustration of dealing with osCommerce – which was a prominent Open Source eCommerce platform at the time and required touching the core files every time you wanted to add or edit a feature. No more of that with Magento!
Here is the presentation for the overview:
