Yireo is an internet company based in The Netherlands. We have a small dedicated team and a strong affiliation with open source. We love technology and work to open it up to you, so you can benefit from it also.
Training & Events
We regularly train both backend developers and frontend developers in The Netherlands, throughout Europe and worldwide, both on-site and online. Topics include Magento 2, React, Vue, Docker and other Magento-related technologies.
In the past, we have organized also twice a Magento 2 Seminar (2016), twice MageTestFest (2017 and 2019) and twice Reacticon (2018).
Yireo is home to many Magento 2 extensions. Some are offered for free, others are offered against a fee: This provides us with an income, and you with the guarantee of continued support and long-term development.
Part of this is also that Yireo is proud member of ExtDN (the Magento Extension Developer Network).
Besides education and extensions, we regularly deal with coding audits, extension reviews and consultancy in general.
History of Yireo
Yireo was originally founded through a Dutch company in 2008, but various developers left this company in 2011 and started Yireo as an independent company. Since then, the company size of Yireo has remained small, but various freelancers now make up the Yireo team as well.
While Yireo started as a tutorial-club in concept, its focus moved to extension-development after releasing a first draft of MageBridge in 2009. Since then, numerous other Joomla and Magento extensions have been released. Since late 2012, the Yireo portfolio has also been expanded with custom services to aid webdesigners and webdevelopers in their work. In 2014, the move was made to focus on training and education, starting with a book Programming Joomla Plugins written by founder Jisse Reitsma.
Together with the book, we decided to focus more and more on trainings: The year 2015 was filled with Joomla development trainings and Magento 1 development trainings. Early 2016, Yireo organized a succesful Magento 2 Seminar with 220 attendees, and since then we have been focusing on Magento 2 development trainings as well.
In 2017, Joomla was dropped and Magento became the sole focus. Slowly, also Magento 1 was faded out in favor of Magento 2. Since 2018, React and Vue have been added to that portfolio.
