10 Technical Skills That Every Magento Developer Should Have

As one of leading e-commerce platforms, Magento is extremely popular with enterprise-level merchants that sell large volumes of products. Business owners choose Magento because of good user experience and vast resource library. In addition, Magento is an open-source and thus customizable platform. Therefore, Magento e-commerce store owners are in constant search for highly qualified Magento developers that can handle this customization. Let’s find out which technical skills are needed to successfully pass a job interview for a Magento developer.

Which Technical Skills are Required for a Magento Programmer?

Qualified Magento programmers should be able to demonstrate the following technical skills and experience:

    1. Magento platform itself. It may sound obvious, but it is still worth mentioning that advanced Magento developers should have a deep knowledge of e-commerce platform working principles, with the Magento platform as an example. Besides, Magento programmers should be familiar with Magento architecture, versions, and basic features.
    2. PHP. PHP is the core language of Magento, so it is another important skill that every Magento developer should have.
    3. MySQL. Because Magento uses the MySQL database, Magento developers should also have a solid knowledge of MySQL DBMS.
    4. JavaScript. Good knowledge of JavaScript is necessary when adding custom functionality.
    5. PSD and XHTML. Knowledge of PSD and XHTML is required to convert the Photoshop (PSD) to the XHTML files for templates.
    6. IDE and debuggers. Magento programmers should have experience with integrated development environments and debugging tools, such as PHPStorm, Netbeans, Eclipse, Zend Studio, etc.
    7. Backend. A professional Magento developer should be familiar with server side, i.e. know the working principles of Apache and Nginx servers.
    8. Virtual machines. Magento developers should be able to configure and use VMs, such as Vagrant, VMWare, or Parallels.
    9. Mobile app development. Almost every e-commerce website has a mobile version, so good Magento programmers should know technologies that are necessary for a Magento store to go mobile.
    10. Magento widget and module development.
