I am new to magento. Before the question, my background:
I have some previous experience in php. I have developed a small e-commerce site for food ordering as part of my course project. (but I have used procedural method for the same)
I know the fundamentals of OOPS concepts. I have programming experience in c++ and java.
I know html5, css3 and js and have done some projects in them too.
I installed magento CE 2.1 in ubuntu 15.10 LAMP. I am using the Magento_Community_Edition_2.0_User_Guide to learn the basics.
I want to learn magento from 2 perspectives:
a. website owner
i.e. I need to be able to setup an online store, run it and make customization in the front end and in functionality.
A. Is an in-depth understanding of php OOPS and development experience required for this? Do you suggest learning this before looking at learning magento from a developer's perspective?
B. To learn magento from a store owner's perspective what leaning resources are available and what approach is suitable?
C. To learn magento from a developer's perspective what leaning resources are available and what approach is suitable?
D. Do I have to study about the previous versions of magento(1.x)?
