Does programming knowledge help at all in e-commerce?

7 replies
I'm a junior level React developer (can do most things but am slow) and am interested in possibly doing e-commerce one day for myself. Most marketing tools are available as plugins these days so I wanted to ask you guys who may have dabbled in one or both of these fields whether there's any carryover in terms of skillset. Do programmers have any advantages in modern e-commerce?

    Yeah, sure. Having knowledge about PHP language I think will go along way to understanding e-commerce as it could be used to building the entire e-commerce site.

      I agree that you should have knowledge of PHP. Along with this you should understand
      deeply how e-commerce site works. Then it will be easy for you to develop an
      website for your own.

      Best of luck.

    Don,t think any basic knowledge of any language is helpful to you for making an e commerce website, as e commerce is not a easy task to do ??

    I think it make sence. Because you know how developers works, estimate time. And you know what is clean code. So, what are you doing?

      In Ecommerce website most of the work done by the developer, well if i am talking about html, css which is a core part of designer but php and dot net, or any angular programming work done by the lead developer.
