Magento Certification: Solution Specialist Exam Guide

Crimson Agility takes pride in being a Magento Professional Partner. However, to reach this level of partnership, you need to have 12 certifications of different fields when working with Magento. We currently are at a Silver Partner tier with Magento based on joint booking attainment, technical proficiency, and customer satisfaction.

From the Magento 2 Solution Specialist page

“A Magento 2 Solution Specialist is an expert user of the Magento 2 eCommerce platform. It is designed for those who can efficiently align business objectives with Magento 2 functionality, optimize use of native features, and avoid unnecessary customization. Areas of knowledge include eCommerce, Magento Architecture, Magento Admin & Storefront, Business & Applications, and Catalog. “

The Magento exams can be intimidating even for the most expert developers and Solution Specialists. However, these tests can be a vital part of your businesses marketing and reinforcing your reputation. That being said, it can be stressful, so Crimson Agility would like to help provide some helpful tips to get you that certification. 

How to Prepare for Magento Solution Specialist Certification

  1. Create or Purchase a Study Guide: It is vital to make sure you have the information to narrow what needs to be studied. At Crimson Agility, we used the SwiftOtter Solutions study guide, which gave us specific information to understand. We then paired this information with the official Magento User Guide to get even more specifics on the configurations and how it works on the front end. 
  2. Form a Study Group: Studying in a group promotes a sense of community and helps provide teaching opportunities when you teach the information that you learned from the study guide and inform the ones around you because the best way to reinforce knowledge is to help others.
  3. Rest/ Peace and Quiet: No one, and I mean no one, can run on fumes. It’s vital to keep rested and to take intermediate breaks to refresh the mind. If you dig yourself into studying or stay up late, it can cause frustration and a lack of focus.
  4. Different Study Tools and Games: One of the worst parts of studying is that it can be BORING. It would help if you kept things interesting for yourself and your possible study group. At Crimson Agility, we created flashcards, watched videos, inspiring memory associations, received tutoring from some people that have passed the test, and even created a Jeopardy game.
  5. Practice Makes Perfect: Repetition of the material is everything, and nothing beats just doing it over, and over, and over, and over, and over again. 

These exams are a vital part of the Magento platform and to becoming a Magento certified partner. Magento only wants the most qualified and knowledgeable of personal development on their sites. We are always providing a consistent experience between all different websites between different development firms. This standard sets a future of integrity for all client websites. That’s why we at Crimson Agility consider it a cornerstone of our business. That’s why Crimson Agility takes pride in having some of the most certifications out of any Magento development firm, and why we want to help others strive to the Magento standard.

Tips and Tricks for Styling Magento 2 Websites

Written by Rich Samartino

One of the driving principles in software development is DRY – ‘Don’t Repeat Yourself’. This has led to the rise of package managers like PHP’s Composer, which is utilized by Magento 2 – one of the key differentiators between it and Magento 1.

In a similar way, Magento 2’s usage of the Less CSS preprocessor allows frontend developers to join the DRY movement. Instead of redeclaring font colors, page widths, or input border styles in multiple places, CSS preprocessors allow these values to be declared as variables.

An even more powerful feature is mixins, which allow entire blocks of styles to be declared as a kind of function, with or without arguments, that can then be used in multiple places. It is similar in concept to declaring a PHP abstract class which is then used as-is or modified by the implementing child class.

The Magento team built an extensive frontend library utilizing Less variables and mixins so that developers can customize the default theme with minimal amounts of custom code. Below, I’ll show some examples how to do this, and highlight some other useful features to make your frontend Magento 2 development a little easier.

Utilizing the Magento UI Library 

Magento-UI Library Variables

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As documented in Magento DevDocs, your custom theme can totally transform the look and feel of default Magento styles simply by redefining a few Less variables, as shown in this example:

Ideally, your variable redefinitions should go in <theme_dir>/web/css/source/_extend.less (they can also go in <theme_dir>/web/css/source/_theme.less, but this will override the parent theme’s _theme.less file.)

One question is, how do you know which variables to override? Consult the Magento UI Library docs, or inspecting default styles in the browser (made easier with CSS source maps and Grunt, covered below), will reveal which Less mixin is outputting the style, and inspecting that mixin will tell you which variable contains the value you want to change.

For example, the Luma theme styles primary action buttons here with a mixin defined here. Looking at that mixin, you can see that various button styles default to Less variables; for example the background color defaults to the @button-primary__color variable. So, redefining the @button-primary__color in your _extend.less file will change the background color of those buttons throughout the website.

It’s worth reading through the DevDocs on this topic and familiarizing yourself with all of the different mixins and variables used by the UI Library because it will save you a lot of lines of code now and make your styles much more maintainable and extendable in the long run – unless you’re a WET programmer – ‘we enjoy typing’ 😉

Using Mixins Defined in _utilities.less

Some handy (and less documented, as far as I can tell) mixins are located in _utilities.less. Some styles, like flexbox, require vendor prefixes to maintain compatibility with older browsers. Magento wrote a mixin to save you from typing out these prefixes. There’s also a more generic .lib-css() mixin that will output these vendor prefixes for any CSS style if the @_prefix argument is specified.

Again, it could be worth spending a few minutes perusing _utilities.less since some other handy mixins are included, like .lib-url which makes referencing asset urls a little easier (but mysteriously isn’t used in core code anywhere…)

All Styles Should Be Wrapped in Magento Media Query

Personally I don’t think this was a great idea by Magento, but all styles, even those which don’t target a certain screen size, should be wrapped in a media query, or else they will be output in both styles-m.css and styles-l.css, making browser debugging harder and file sizes bigger. You can find many examples of these media queries in core code, including here.

Compiling Styles with Grunt

Your frontend development will be made much easier by using Grunt to compile styles, rather than clearing pub/static and relying on PHP to process Less styles. Grunt compiles styles faster and produces CSS source maps, which allow you to see exactly which Less file styles are coming from in your browser. Grunt setup and usage is well documented here.

Conclusion

As you can see above, taking some time to investigate Magento’s Less-based UI Library will make writing styles for Magento much more interesting, less repetitive and more maintainable.

While this is all a great improvement over writing styles in .css files, technologies such as Less and Grunt, originally included in Magento during its development ~5 years ago, have been surpassed in popularity or technological superiority by Sass, Gulp, npm scripts, webpack and probably many other technologies I’m not aware of. Additionally, Magento might have chosen to base its default styles on a more actively developed library like Bootstrap, which can be included in a project’s build pipeline using Sass files and extended similarly to how I described extending Magento’s homegrown UI Library above.

So, try to master, but don’t feel limited by Magento’s default styles framework. Here at Crimson Agility’s Arizona office, our goal is to make your code as DRY as the Sonoran Desert 🙂

Why Magento Best Practices are Important to Your Business

Written by Erica Summers

What are you really getting out of a team of Magento experts? Why pay the extra fee to do something the “best practice” way, instead of the quickest or cheapest? And what will one approach versus another cost you in the long run?

If you ever hear from a development team about doing things to follow “best practice”, or are working on estimating different tasks or features and get a few different approaches and time estimates, there’s a very important reason why. It comes down to the versatility of Magento. For instance, Magento’s open source platform has been around for over a decade. It’s a large, complex piece of software that is continually growing and changing, with a large worldwide community of developers continuously improving it. With this never-ending change and growth, code ends up being refactored, standards change, and new features are added. All of this translates into one important takeaway: there is no one way to get something done.

In fact, for any given task or feature there’s probably tens or hundreds of different ways to do the exact same thing, and at one given point in time some of them were the “best practice” way, but that changed and has now become obsolete.

So what does this mean for you as a client?

In short, it comes down to picking the right team and knowing you can rely on their expertise.

There is a growing number of Magento-specific developers and each will have their own way of doing things. Often, you get what you pay for, with cheaper services getting the same thing done but in a way that’s inefficient, disorganized, and ends up costing more in the long-run to fix or upgrade when needs change. Sometimes you’ll lose inbuilt Magento features, or they won’t work as intended because updates were not completed in a way that is upgrade-safe working within Magento official guidelines.

The value you get when working with a certified Magento partner is knowing that not only will the work get done and things will be up and running, but that we will ensure we are working within best practices, keeping up with the standards. This means you have a reliable site that leverages all the exciting inbuilt Magento features and is easy to upgrade, customize, or change. It gives you more flexibility, ability to grow, and reduce cost over time. It also means that you’ll work with a team who won’t just hack at the code to get something done, but will think critically about what the best approach is to get the work done, and how it might need to grow in the long run.

You need a team focused on the big picture. A team that’s dedicated to high-quality service, keeping up with industry standards, and is always learning and growing.

That’s where we come in.

Graduate from Magento 1 Open Source to Magento Commerce 2.3.3

Now is the time to graduate from Magento 1 Open Source to Magento Commerce 2.3.3. “But why? Open Source is free”. Believe me, we hear this all the time. Our Crimson Agility clients are no different and usually ask why they should build their site using Magento Commerce when Magento Open Source is free? We agree that Open Source is a great option. However, in the long run it is not the most cost-effective. Magento Commerce has additional features, the cloud infrastructure, and performance enhancements that are invaluable. With the Magento 1 end of life right around the corner (June 2020), now is the time to turn that tassel and graduate to Magento Commerce 2.

Let’s take a moment and look at the smaller picture here: not migrating from Magento 1.X to the most recent version of Magento 2. If you postpone the decision to make the leap to Magento 2, you are risking your business, reputation, customers data, and privacy not to mention their payment details.  Once Magento 1 is retired, your site becomes a target for those with nefarious intent. According to Magento, 83% of hacked sites were un-patched sites. When Magento 1 is retired, there will be no more patches available. It is like comparing the migration to not taking an Uber and risking the fines and life destruction from driving home from graduation only after a couple drinks. Yes, it can be that destructive.

When Magento 2 was released in 2015, it was not just a simple version upgrade. The new Magento 2 platform is a new improved platform built on state-of-the-art architecture. An outstanding 240,000 sites still utilize Magento 1 today. Mostly because of either the cost of migrating or procrastination. These store owners have also chosen in the past to stay on the comfortable older release to avoid breakage or revenue impacting downtime. But today, more and more educated store owners are realizing the benefits of investing in Magento Commerce 2 and are seeing the results of their investments. Here at Crimson Agility our 21 USA based certified developers have helped nearly 20 sites migrate while limiting downtime and not impacting revenue. Our customers are bringing in the new year stress free and will continue to grow their business safely.

What is New in Magento Commerce 2.3.3?

The new features in Magento Commerce 2.3.3 are amazing. There is so much to list but we encourage you to view Adobe’s Magento Commerce 2.3.3 Release Notes and read through all of the greatness for yourself. Below we have outlined some key points of Magento Commerce 2.3.3 enhancements announced November 7, 2019:

  • Over 100 security fixes reducing backend log significantly
    • Support for PSD2 compliance support
    • Supports PHP 7.3 (7.1 end of life is November 30, 2019)
  • Google Shopping Ads Channel is now part of the core code – cut ad spend by 50%!
  • Amazon Sales Channel in now part of core code
  • Progressive Web Application (PWA) Studio – fast page performance and increase SEO and conversion rates
  • Cloud enhancements
  • Product recommendations powered by Adobe Sensei
  • Superior Experiences – Deliver best-in-class B2B and B2C shopping experiences that accelerate sales
  • Omnichannel innovations – sell everywhere, deliver anywhere managing products, inventory, orders and fulfillments
  • Commerce Intelligence – enable intelligent experiences, uncover insights, and employ better measurement

Update: Our own David Baier emphasized the importance of having trusted partners to ensure your site remains secure, reliable, and high performance in a Webscale article.

“As Magento 1 end-of-life quickly approaches, it is essential for merchants on Magento 1 to plan accordingly for both the short-term and long-term. Though Magento 1 will continue to function after June 2020, it becomes increasingly susceptible to becoming a target to nefarious actors with bad intentions. More than ever, it is vital for merchants to have trusted partners that can secure their site, preserve their reputation, and protect their customers.”

Why You Should Upgrade to Magento 2.3

Magento has announced that as of January 2020, Magento 2.2 will no longer be supported. This means new versions will no longer be released for any Magento 2.2 instance, whether it’s security updates or bug fixes. With this news, you should be looking to upgrade to Magento 2.3 in the near future. In this post, I will explain the major differences between 2.2 and 2.3, and why you should be upgrading. There are many minor bug fixes and security updates that have happened in the changelogs for 2.3, but I will be mainly focused on the major changes: new functionality and major security improvements.

Magento Open Source

Magento Open Source 2.3 comes with quite a few new features, such as Multi Source Inventory, PWI, declarative schema, GraphQL, and many others. In this section we will go in-depth for each one.

Multi-Source Inventory

Multi Source Inventory (MSI) allows merchants to have multiple different warehouses, brick and mortar stores, or distribution centers, and ship from each one depending on which location has the product ordered in stock and even which warehouse is closest to the shipping address on the order. This can help decrease not only shipping times, but also shipping costs.

PWA Studio

Progressive Web Apps (PWA) Studio allows for developers to create a much more intuitive mobile application and can increase performance on mobile devices immensely. In 2018, over 52% of all web traffic came from mobile devices, so having a performative, intuitive, and attractive mobile website is vital in today’s day and age.

GraphQL

This is more of a developer’s tool, however it’s incredibly useful. This allows much quicker and easier manipulation of databases. When used correctly, it can send and receive database information much more efficiently than the standard MySQL system that Magento 2.2 uses 

Declarative Schema

This is another developer tool but is also really helpful for Magento when releasing new security patches. Declarative schema allows developers to declare how they want the database to be structured without having to maintain an upgrade or install script in the module. This means that Magento can make database schema changes in patches, which wasn’t previously possible. 

Magento Commerce

Magento Commerce has all of the Magento Open Source changes, along with a few extras. In this section we will go over a few of the improvements that aren’t included in the Magento Open Source Version.

Page Builder

One of the most impressive improvements in Magento 2.3 thus far is the page builder. This has vastly improved the CMS content development and makes it extremely easy for merchants to set up their static content without the need of a developer.

CMS Improvements

In situations where you use the WYSIWYG editor but the page builder isn’t available, the WYSIWYG editor has also had some great improvements. If you’ve used the Magento 2.2 WYSIWYG editor, you have probably noticed a plethora of icons, many of which are hard to understand. In 2.3 they streamlined the WYSIWYG editor to look much more simplistic and easier to understand.

 

There’s a multitude of reasons to upgrade to Magento 2.3. Due to a SQL injection vulnerability found in 2.3.0, we highly recommend skipping 2.3.0 and upgrading straight to 2.3.1. If you are already on 2.3.0 and haven’t applied the patch to fix the vulnerability or upgraded to 2.3.1, upgrade immediately. For those of you currently on 2.2, due to Magento dropping support of 2.2 as of January 2020, it’s best to upgrade soon. We can help you upgrade to 2.3.1 as well! Just contact us here so we can get started. 

Have you heard about our new webinar happening on June 20th? We are going to be discussing about B2B commerce and using Magento 2.3 It will begin at 9:00 AM

Crimson Agility Receives Two Nominations from Magento

Crimson Agility Receives Two Nominations from Magento
Most Innovative Commerce Experience and Best B2B Buyer Experience
Crimson Agility, a full-service e-commerce consulting and development firm, has
been honored with two nominations from 230+ entries, for the 2019 Imagine
Excellence Awards by Magento, an Adobe Company. Crimson and its clients,
Amped Innovation and Performance Health, snagged highly-coveted nominations
for the Most Innovative Commerce Experience Award and the Best B2B Buyer Experience Award, respectively.
The winners will be announced at the Imagine 2019 event in Las Vegas.
Amped Innovation sells much needed solar appliances in Africa. The problem was
affordability. More than 80% of Amped customers earn less than $2.50 per day.
“By working with Crimson to incorporate micro-payments into the Magento
platform, we tapped into emerging markets in Africa and Asia making our solar
products accessible to the poorest customers,” said Andi Kleissner, Co-Founder
and CEO of Amped Innovation. “Our customers can now buy previously
unattainable products on a payment plan they can afford.”
“The collaboration enabled Amped to achieve triple-digit growth, while introducing a
life-changing line of products in previously untapped markets,” added Kleissner.
Performance Health is a leader in consumer healthcare and the largest global
manufacturer and distributor of products to the rehabilitation and sports medicine
markets.
Crimson’s nomination alongside Performance Health for the Best B2B Buyer
Experience Award stemmed from the positive results of the features and capabilities
Crimson added to Performance Health’s e-commerce sites.
“With multiple, highly-complex e-commerce sites, we’ve put Crimson and Magento
through the ringer, testing their knowledge and capabilities beyond what we ever
imagined,” said Kristin Greenwell, E-Commerce Director at Performance Health. “They
have exceeded our expectations since day one.”
These capabilities provide a user experience that rivals the performance of the best-
designed B2B websites. The e-commerce sites accommodate power users who
manage thousands of ship-to addresses, many requisition lists, negotiated pricing, and
hundreds of employees buying online for the company. “Crimson’s knowledge of Magento and e-commerce is unmatched. We have been so impressed with their accountability and determination to make our website look, feel and most importantly, PERFORM how we and our customers expect,” added Greenwell.
“We are proud to stand with both our clients as finalists for these two prestigious
awards. We credit our success to a shared vision, collaboration, and hard work”, says
David Baier, Managing Partner at Crimson Agility
