Part Time Comp Sci Student doing Internship

Hi there,

Got a Internship with a company that wants to build a Magento e-shop from the ground up and I am struggling to find the resources that I need to fully learn the framework. What things do I need to learn to build the website from the ground up? Note I know how to install Magento. I need to know how to build a web app from nothing like you do in Laravel or Django by establishing the CRUD. 

So this is where I am at the moment:
I've spent the last 3 years writing Python and messing about with WordPress on a casual level. I've had exposure to PHP, MYSQL, GIT, APACHE, LINUX (most things LAMP). I start a Web Technologies course in October (TT284 Open University). I've had some exposure to OOPHP but learned most of OOP on Udacity and Code academy in Javascript. My Frontend skills are basic. I know how to write HTML/CSS but I haven't got a good memory for Bootstrap classes. I tend to cut copy and paste. University has stripped me of my web developer knowledge in year 1 because I've had to learn all the foundations mean while getting my Calculus in order. 

The company that I am going to work for has 2 senior software engineers who are going to guide me through the process but I don't want to disappoint them. This is my dream job.

I have a whole library at my disposal including O'reliey/Safari  (Ya Rly).
Purchased some Udemy material etc

What I really don't want to do is end up looking like a idiot. I want to get on with the job and show what a Open University student can do. I didn't have the luxury of going to University while I was young due to living in a rural location so I want to make this work.

Your help will be appreciated. Thanks.
