Entry-level dev. I’ll be starting a Magento 2 position. Tips?

I have a little more than a year of experience in web development (Laravel, Angular, Python, etc.), and before that a year of game development. I’ll be starting a new position as a Magento Backend Developer.

I’ve heard of the infamy of Magento and how it is “over-engineered”, “bloated”, and has a steep learning curve. Which and how much of these are true? What are some of the beginner caveats I should look out for? Is the backend as bad as the frontend?

Also, I know its support for Windows is deprecated now, how do I get started on developing Magento locally on my Windows machine? Docker? VM?

Checking the shipping costs on all of our orders of the past few week

Hi All, I am a Magento noob. We have had a big sale with Affiliates through Rakuten and I need to check that we haven’t applied the discount to the shipping and hence overpaying our affiliates. When I export the data from orders as a CSV it doesn’t include the field for shipping costs. Is there a way that I can add this field to the report?

Currently, I am manually clicking through thousands of orders to see if we charged shipping or not.

What is your M2 local dev environment?

I’ve been using MAMP Pro which is not working out to well. I than set up a vagrant instance with similar result, 20+ sec page loads or timing out, just everything very slow.

I’m on a 2016 MBP 16gb and use to developing WP sites utilizing a NPM+Gulp+BrowserSync workflow and 1-2s pageloads on a PHP file update, but this is getting ridiculous. What works for you guys? Any insight is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Order Archiving in Magento 2.3 … Other than moving the row from sales_flat_order_grid to magento_sales_flat_order_grid_archive … What else happens?

Is it really just as simple as “goes from one table to the other”? Is there any loss of data whatsoever? We’re about to do it for 300,000 orders.

Also, have you seen much performance difference after doing this? I’ve warned our team that a better idea is to optimize the columns on the Order Maintenance page, and we’ll do that eventually, but I am worried that after we do this, NOTHING will change…

What are some specific things to avoid when writing a theme, to ensure maximum performance?

Lots of threads recently have been shitting on Magento 2’s performance and in each of the threads there are comments saying that a badly-written theme by shitty developers can make or break a website.

But none of the comments actually go into detail about what makes a bad theme so bad, and I’ve not seen a guide about how to write a good, performant theme.

So what are some mistakes which these “bad developers” make which affect performance so much? And how can a bad developer turn into a good developer?

TL;DR How make Magento 2 go fast?

Access Compat Errors

I know that these errors in the error logs is showing that the local.xml cannot be accessed and can be safely ignored.

The problem is that it is checking every second, so I was wondering if this was common or if I have something configured wrong. I am trying to clean up this project I took over from another admin and some of this is new to me.

Can this self check be dialed back to check less frequently?
