Headless Commerce with PWA and Magento 2.4
What is headless commerce? Imagine I'm watering my garden using my hose pipe, the water comes from the tap, through the pipe and out in one stream of water, but I need to water a lot of flowers all at once, what do I do? I take off the traditional nozzle at the front of the hose and attach a new one that sprays the water in multiple directions at the same time, headless gardening! Headless commerce allows you to decouple your backend (the tap) and your frontend (the nozzle) and replace it with an API (the new spraymattic 500). Boasting faster delivery, greater control and better security you can now deploy from the backend to multiple channels at the same time and Eric is here to tell us how Magento is losing its head!
Who's it for?
If you have an interest in how Magento works, own a Magento store or are just excited by tomorrows new normal then this is the one for you.
Who is Eric Erway?
With almost quarter of a century worth of experience Eric has worked for well known, industry giants such as AOL as senior producer, design director and product manager, Dell as a senior user experience designer, user experience strategist and experience director until becoming senior experience manager and senior manager of product management at Magento.
