Hello, my name is Ed, 44 years old, from The Netherlands.
Because I want to replace my website www.proconsoles.nl , I discovered that Magento websites are so much more beautiful then Wordpress websites.
Especially the pull down menu's. That's why I do not want to continue with Wordpress, but wants to learn Magento.
I am really a perfectionist and technical educated and willing to learn everything what is needed.
I already made the decission to choose for the Ultimo theme and have starter's questions like:
1) Where to start ? A book, the Ultimo theme 200 pages pdf, manuals to install Magento ? Other pdf's ? An online course ?
2) Where to install Magento 2 to begin with ? On my Win7 laptop ? On my own hosting server (have fiber 250 Mbit upload internet without any restrictions) ? A hosting provider with dedicated VPS (expensive ?) or shared ?
3) How many hours do I need to put into a good working stable and fast Magento 2 website, like this one : http://www.ledscherp.nl (also Magento Ultimo theme) ?
Hope you can answer, my really beginner's questions.
I also am writing a step by step manual, facing everything a beginner like me, is going to deal with. Hopefully that manual can help other beginner's in the future.
Edited : To begin with, I will start reading :
