The Need

Magento development can be hard. Anyone experienced with the platform will tell you this. The platform offers great power out of the box, and a rock solid platform on which to build custom functionality, but customizing Magento well requires skilled hands. At StoreFront we are frequently called on to rescue projects which have been started by developers without the required expertise in the Magento platform. Magento understands this as well and thus they have introduced the developer certification program. It is our hope that the market will embrace the program.

The Program

We are very pleased that Magento now offers a developer certification program. There is no doubt that Magento is very technically complex and requires expert hands. We see the developer certification program as a way for individual developers and service providers to demonstrate their expertise with the platform. Once the exam is officially released, all StoreFront developers will now be required to pursue certification. I know we are all eagerly awaiting the challenge.

StoreFront

In the fall, StoreFront sent two of our developers to the Ebay / Magento Innovate conference to participate in the beta test of the Magento Developer certification program. At the end of December the official results of the beta certification tests were announced, and Im pleased to say that StoreFront now has two officially certified Magento developers.

Congratulations to Dennis Rogers and Garth Brantley for passing the beta exam and receiving Magento developer certification!
