While Magento was developed using the PHP language, the size and complexity of this framework goes way beyond simple PHP knowledge. A whole new paradigm and new logic has to be learned. Magento contains powerful eCommerce functionalities that need to be learned and mastered by Magento developers.

Magento is one of the most-used eCommerce frameworks in the world, and its usage has grown constantly over the years. With Version 2 of the framework becoming the de facto standard, a lot of existing websites will end up migrating to it.
