  • Magento 2 Sunglasses Shop

    As one of the main developers on this project, the main parts I did were:
    1. Sunglasses Configurator - using all the data from customers' local database, I have created a configurator where users could choose their frame, lens color, lens types, add options, and see a real-time preview of the final product, but also input their prescription and medical data. At the end, users could get a price and the option to order that
    2. Custom B2B functions for dealers like a quick order and a save cart module for later re-order feature
    3. Custom API endpoints where the ERP could take data from

  • Magento 1 + TYPO3 6 Connected Website

    The main goal of the project was to use Magento 1 for all the shop features and TYPO3 for all the content/blog pages.

    As the only developer in this project, I successfully achieved the goal, creating a great connection between Magento and TYPO3, both having the exact same design, so users would not notice the change between the two systems while surfing on the website.

    This also included custom Magento API endpoints and custom modules in TYPO3 that allowed to reproduce certain shop functions like a shopping cart into TYPO3 as well for consistency.

    For this project, I also developed a quick order feature, and also integrated B2B functionalities.

  • Magento 1 Gift Shop with Wedding Registry

    The goal of the project was to have a gift shop with a wedding registry feature where couples could register, create a wishlist, and share that with all their friends/guests, and the guests could either buy a product fully or contribute a certain amount of money towards a gift.

    I was the only developer, and by making some custom modules, I managed to fulfill the requirements.

    This included a nice area in the admin as well to manage couples/registries and all their purchased or partially contributed products, so these could be sent to the couple after the wedding date.

  • Laravel Order Management System with Import to Magento 1

    Together with another developer, we built a system in Laravel for our client where his team could manage suppliers, orders, and generate complex reports that Magento did not support.

    They could order products, re-order existing ones, and manage all the product-related data (name, description, options, categories, images, prices) directly in this system. Once the order arrived in their warehouse and was processed, everything was imported into Magento and update/create products accordingly.

    One of their goals was efficiency in using the system so, in the end, they could create multiple orders and thousands of products in a day. We used data from their past orders, generated reports, and finally predicted data for a faster order process.

    The import of the data into Magento was done by a custom made Magmi plugin.
