Website Developer

Learn how to start your project in Magnolia with Light Development.

Website Developer training

Learn about Light Development and Magnolia's CLI tool to build websites quickly without the need to program in Java.

Work on the file system and use technologies that you already know, such as CSS and HTML5. Define templates and configurations, faster and easier.

This course does not require any prior Magnolia knowledge. However, we highly recommend that participants have used scripting languages, and are familiar with Terminal or Command Prompt and Git.

This training is for front-end developers:

  • Who can work well with Terminal / Command Prompt

  • With expert knowledge of HTML and CSS

  • Comfortable using modern text editors (e.g. Visual Studio Code, Atom)
