BigCommerce has traditionally been an ecommerce SaaS, but with their new headless initiative they hired Modern Tribe and XWP to build a WordPress plugin as their first major tool using headless ecommerce.

This BigCommerce meetup talk will be a plugin review and overview of the capabilities and services of BigCommerce. We'll look at how the API works, how data is stored, and how the plugin can be extended. We'll also look at the advantages of using a SaaS instead of 100% local work.

This meetup is mostly for advanced WordPress developers.
Topher has been a web developer since 1995, and a WordPress developer since 2010. He lives in Grand Rapids Michigan, in United States with his wife and two daughters. Topher currently works for BigCommerce as a WordPress Developer Evangelist. He tweets @topher1kenobe
