Hope you're all closing out 2013 strong with 3.8! We're announcing our first Meetup of 2014 : Wooing eCommerce with WordPress
January 22nd at 6PM at Automattic.
We'll be talking more about WooCommerce this coming year and this is the big splash opening!
Come along to get an introduction to the WooCommerce plugin for WordPress and to discuss the idea of building a store on WordPress (and why you would want to).
Brent Shepherd of WooCommerce Subscriptions fame will be taking the stage to really get you going on WooCommerce. We'll then be having a show-and-tell for all you WooCommerce users out there.
WordPress, the world's most popular publishing software, now hosts the world's fastest growing e-commerce software, WooCommerce*.
So why is WooCommerce so popular? Why would you want to set up a store on WordPress? And what the heck is this WooCommerce thingamajig anyway?
In this talk, Brent will demonstrate the most interesting features of the WooCommerce plugin and discuss why its open source foundation combined with a marketplace for extensions is helping foster a rapidly growing community. He’ll also share the stories of some folks now making a living thanks to the free WooCommerce plugin.
Brent now lives is San Francisco but hails from Australia where he was a co-organiser of WordCamp Melbourne and WordCamp Gold Coast. He’s just helped kick start the WooCommerce San Francisco meetup and because he has an unnatural love for the plugin. That's also why he spends his days as an independent WooCommerce developer working on WooCommerce Subscriptions - the most popular 3rd party extension in the official WooCommerce marketplace.
