Sometimes we come across a blog that is so good that we just have to share it. We will highlight a few of our favorites each month here on the blog, but don't forget to see what else we are sharing on Twitter and Facebook.
While we typically feature a particular blog post in this roundup, the Firebear Studio blog as a whole is worth a look. A valuable resource for Magento developers, the blog gets into the nitty gritty of Magento development.
