Recently someone without a lot of Magento experience told me they were going to be doing a Shopify site with React soon and wanted to know how they could level up into doing Magento sites.
First of all, if you’re getting into Shopify and React, you might just want to stick with that platform if that brings you success. But if you do want to dip into the Magento market, that’s a perfect transition.
React and PWA are really important in the Magento market currently. Getting familiar with that through Shopify is a great way to get started with that.
In theory, you should be able to be agnostic to the platform. (Although in practice, there are always some logistical jumps between platforms.)
But getting that experience in Shopify is a great way to get prepared for Magento. If I was looking for somebody for a PWA role for Magento and they had done some killer work on a Shopify site, I would definitely view that as good experience.
