GoDaddy Online Store is taking Spree to altogether new dimensions of scale and user-experience. Its one of the largest multi-tenant deployments of Spree. We plan to scale Spree to a huge number of hosted stores (hundreds of thousands) and plan to add thousands of new stores every month. At the same time, its very simple-to-use and enables small-medium businesses to build, manage and operate e-commerce websites easily without the need of any tech know-how.
We are very thankful to the Spree community and excited about making significant contributions to it. These contributions are and will continue to be in the form new features, extensions, performance and scalability improvements, bug fixes, quality improvements, knowledge sharing, etc. The scale of Online Store poses unique set of challenges and many good things will come out of it!
Please come and meet the Online Store team at GoDaddy’s Sunnyvale office and engage in some enriching discussions with fellow Spree users/builders. We will be sharing more information on Online Store, how we made Spree multi-tenant, provided a very sleek user-experience, made performance improvements to Spree, upgraded from 2.0 to 2.2, etc.
