Magento is an Open Source, e-commerce web application that was created by Varien, and built on components of the Zend Framework. Magento is the hottest and most powerful e-commerce software and has gained popularity in a short period of time. Users can control the look, content and functionality of their e-commerce web site with the help of Magento’s powerful theming engine.

Magento 1.3: PHP Developer’s Guide will help developers extend and customize the Magento e-commerce system using PHP code. They will get familiar with the architecture and internal structure of Magento and learn about the best modules available. Developers can then build a shipping module for their Magento store to give users options for receiving their items once they have paid for them.

Through this book, developers can build a basic brand-management module for Magento, in order to manage brands and display their details. They can also, create, update, delete, and retrieve customer data from within Magento by implementing the customer API. Additionally, developers can also import/export files to retrieve and store information from and to external sources using Excel Spreadsheet or CSV data.

PHP developers who want to understand the architecture of Magento and learn how to extend the system with PHP code, as well as add new features will find this book a beneficial and interesting read. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, visit: –
