Meet the instructor
I'm Mark, the instructor of this course.
My passion over the last decade has revolved entirely around Magento. Starting with the early days of Magento 0.8, I've had a heavy interest in the Zend and Magento Frameworks, and have been devoted to eCommerce & PHP for even longer (over 20 years!). I've held all positions within many organizations, ranging from junior developer to chief solution architect.
My numerous years of LAMP stack programming expertise have paved the way for me to become a Zend Certified Engineer and 3x Magento Certified Developer. I love open-source software, and have maintained the most popular development environment for Magento since the release of Magento 2.
I'm married to my wonderful wife Juliann, and we are the proud parents of twin girls Lily and Brielle. I live in Northeast Ohio and love eating chipotle burritos, solving Rubik's cubes, driving my 240sx, and watching Cleveland Browns games.
