Be a faster and more efficient Magento developer
Save time on doing tasks and solving problems

In this fast course I’ll talk about a sort of tools that help me on day-to-day Magento development, and will share some precious hints for developing.

We’ll see some tools and hints for (and not limited to):

  • Create modules
  • Methods and autocomplete classes feature
  • Compare template phtml files in an easier way
  • Inspect the processed Layout XML
  • Export and import large databases
  • Debug PHP code
  • and much more…

With the tools and tips for magento development, you’ll be able to develop modules, debug layout xml, export and import large databases in Magento, much faster than you do now.

This course uses Magento but is valid for any 1.x versions.
