What this website is all about :
I created this site to teach any beginner to web design on how to create an E-commerce site or online store from scratch. What is my background : My name is Elle G. and I’m a full stack web developer from Los Angeles. I have been building E-commerce sites the last 10 years using many E-commerce software. I have used Drupal Cart, Magento, Prestashop, Big Commerce on different projects.
This is what I have learn :
1) Not all ecommerce applications are the same. Many programs
require a steep learning curve and require coding experience.
2) A majority of people starting an Ecommerce shop want a more user friendly and easy to setup site. Many Ecommerce
solutions are very difficult to setup and maintain & require a professional developer.
