We start by going over the initial concepts of the Magento 2 platform and how you can get set up quickly. We then cover the basics of creating and installing a new module. Moving on, we explore data models and how to create your own. We then dive deep into catalog infrastructure, pricing, shopping cart, checkout, admin, and API interfaces so you can develop rich and deep customizations. We put the icing on the cake by demonstrating unit testing, exploring the built-in testing suite, and showing you how to develop your own tests for your extensions.
