Hello, Dear Visitor.

I am happy to have you reading my blog and will be even happier if you find the articles here useful. The subject matter that I would like to cover here is web development and specifically some tricks around Magento.

Magento and my impressions…

I know that Magento is an open source E-Commerce platform and I can only add that the list of the companies utilizing Magento speaks enough …. For more check http://www.magentocommerce.com/showcase.

I checked my data archives and found the date of my first Magento project – 13 February 2009. At that time, I had a good background experience with CSS, HTML, Java Script and Cake PHP, but know nothing about Magento. With some advice from colleagues and some reverse engineering, I managed to complete the project.

At that moment, I realized that I really liked it! It was a true challenge! The challenge that I needed.

When I look back now, I see many finished projects, many sleepless nights (pondering over a critical issue or having to meet deadlines), many clients, both good and bad, satisfied and disgruntled, but the most important thing for me is the experience I have gained after all these “battles”.

Hmm… The sentences above might sound like Magento is the best and number one E-Commerce platform, but that is not what I actually wanted to say. Magento is among the top software, but if you are a store owner, you should do your own research or consult somebody if Magento is the right platform for your business.

Why am I doing this blog?

After 4 years of freelance work, I realized that I have had many successful projects… but you can’t see my signature on them. My portfolio is in fact empty! I don’t blame the people I worked for, because they actually gave me the opportunity to earn my knowledge. So, this is my place and now I have the chance to let the world know that I exist.

Another reason for running this blog is that I’d like to share my knowledge about Magento with the community, just like the community had shared it with me earlier.

Enjoy reading…
