I'm a Cyber Security major and I met a small business that wants an ecommerce site. I've wanted to learn Magneto, so I'm going to postpone my current projects and I wanted to learn Magneto to build the sites. I make $200 a week and I pay my rent, so I was going to build the site for $300 so I can put it on my resume.
I read the above link and it said a college student or a PHP Developer cannot create a Magneto website.
Is it unrealistic to think I could learn Magneto to create a site for a small business in 2018?
As far as hosting, I was going to recommend a $5 1GB Linode. I manage servers for my current job, so I will apply updates and manage the server for them for free, then when I need to update to a new version of GNU/Linux I will charge them a fee to do so.
I really want to learn Magneto. If this is possible can you link some good sites to learn Magneto?
If not I guess I will check out Wordpress.
