This Community collection of resources links to blog posts, podcasts, presentations, and books created by members of the Magento community and core developers separated into popular topics.
New items will be added incrementally, and older links rotated out. Keep an eye on this space for the latest community resources!
Another community-based resource, focused on describing the Magento 2 environment, is the Magento 2 Awesome List.
Do you know of a popular resource about Magento 2 that has been released/published within the past year? Does it fill gaps in our current docs and provide important information? Let us know!
Magento does not officially endorse any of the linked blogs, books, presentation, or podcasts linked below. They are listed here because the content has been well received within the Magento community.
See our collection of best and leading practices, common solutions, and more in the Community contributed best practices guide. If you have excellent best practices, tips and tricks, and work-arounds, feel free to contribute!
