Almost every week, I search Magento Connect just to see what new features and themes are being added. The creativity of the Magento developer community can be quite impressive.
One of the great joys of working with Magento is knowing that it is fully extendable in many ways, from simple theme enhancements, to full-fledged functionality changes. Depending on your own skills and talents, you may want to take solutions you've created and let others benefit, either as free contributions or money-making add-ons.
In this chapter, we have covered searching, evaluating, and installing Magento Connect extensions, the process of extending existing Magento functionality using plugins, and creating and registering your own extension from scratch.
