Conclusions
In this book, we have seen how to create and develop a responsive Magento theme with custom widgets and the custom admin theme panel. We have also seen how to customize the admin theme to make it look better and similar to the front end.The responsive web design is very important, especially during a time like this, when mobile devices are constantly developing and being disseminated, and purchases via smartphones are increasing. If you improve and learn how to do this in the better way, you can offer very high quality services to your clients.I hope you found this guide useful and that it has offered you the fundamental knowledge to be able to continue your work and realize some fantastic Magento themes.

Magento Front End certifcation

Do you know that Magento has also introduced the Front End Developer certifcation? This certifcation is aimed at all the frontend developers with a good knowledge of the Magento front end, whose main focus is on modifying the user interface (UI) of existing themes or on creating new themes.

To become a certifed frontend Magento developer, you have to register on the Magento web site at http://magento.com/training/catalog/certification The certifcation voucher costs 260 USD and you can take the exam at a specifc center nearest to you.

After I took this certifcation, many companies contacted me for professional services to create custom Magento themes or to improve their stores.Thanks to the certifcation, you can assure your customers and the agency you work with that you have all the capabilities and a full understanding of Magento theming
