Magento, another open-source platform, deals primarily with e-commerce websites and online stores.
In November they released a second version which aimed to improve every aspect of the platform. This included easier navigation, smoother use for the customer, improved conversion rates and ways to increase store revenue for the owners of Magento online stores.
You may remember it as “Magento Open Source” or “Magento Commerce” which are now depreciated versions of the new and improved 2.0 version.
Overview of Magento
Magento 2.0 provides faster site loading through improved page caching, high-calibre scalability and rich snippets. Rich snippets are inbuilt for data that is structured making your site easier to read for SEO purposes. It also includes CSS pre processing using your LESS or SASS of choice, a sturdier code base and database management improvements.
It employs MySQL or MariaDB relational databases, PHP and bits of the Zend Framework. Zend is a PHP Framework we also work with.
