Magento 2 Certification Series – Magento 2 Certified Solution Specialist

Being a Magento 1 and 2 developer for over 6 years, I’ve decided to take a series of Magento 2 Certifications to brush up my skills, and here are some notes I’ve taken during the study period.

In this video, Magento highlights its main eCommerce strength from a standard Magento installation. In other words, you get these new features out of the box.

Personalised shopping experience, such as:

  • powerful search
  • layered navigation and filtering
  • product recommendations such as add-ons, upsell and related products
  • easy account registration
  • fast two steps checkout

In real development word, Magento 2’s default search is often replaced with Algolia search. The default layered navigation is often enhanced with Amasty Improved Layered Navigation. In terms of the default two step checkout, we reckon that’s one of the best products comes out of Magento 2 so we don’t recommend to modify it since checkout is a very sensitive and costly business logic to mess around.
