Log: How I learned, little by little, Magento 2
It was started on January 3rd 2017. Not sure when I will finish it
Let me start with: I worked with Magento 1 and I am willing to learn Magento 2.
I am learning about Magento 2 + Docker
Day 1: I hate it
Day 2: I will give it a chance. Maybe is not that bad
Day 3: Maybe I was lucky enough to learn Magento 1 from the right developers. I hate Magento 2. It is sooo slow!
Day 4: Learning how to add a new attribute in PDP (Product Details Page)
Day 5: Learning how to change the PDP layout:
- Lesson 1: Check the admin: do you have the right theme applied?
- Lesson 2: Did you flush the cache?
- Lesson 3: Do you have the right layout?
- Lesson 4: Did you read the Docker docs? Some devs might say that Docker is not for devs, but for devOps [what does devOps stand for?]. How can you work with Magento 2 if you can not set it up? How can you run a command from terminal and not know what it does? You just type commands blindly?
Day 6: in day 2 I should have read (more) about Docker!
Start here: https://docs.docker.com/get-started
Day 7: How do I run multiple projects on the same host without stopping the containers? Need to read about posts!
Day 8: I have now “progressed” to creating categories (the category tree) in Admin.
Go to Admin > Catalog > Click Default category (if you want to create a main category you actually need to create a subcategory of the “Default category”) > Click “Add Subcategory” button (grey button on the left side) > Enter name, pick display, set permissions (if you have different groups) > Save (orange button on top right) > refresh page
