The Dream WooCommerce Setup (and how to achieve it): Gabor Javorszky
Gabor says: I've seen a lot of ecommerce sites, both inside and out, over the past 5 years. Most of them had a number of issues that required me to look at them to begin with. This talk will be a collection of ideas that I would want clients to know from a technical point of view that will definitely impact their bottom line. I will touch on simplicity, page weights, caching, servers, administration, tracking, GDPR, email marketing, email delivery. You should bring your questions.
Gabor is part freelancer, part lead developer at Mindsize LLC in the US and spends his time breaking sites so they can be put together better, faster, simpler. He has a history of working customer support for a Woo extension, as well as making sure high traffic sites are humming along nicely.

UPDATE: We have sadly had to cancel the following short talk due to ill health - it will be rescheduled for a future meetup:
PCI Compiance, Noli Shelala (20 minutes: Lightning talk)
As of the 3rd of July 2018, Paypal has placed restrictive limitations all its PayPal Pro accounts forcing website owners to be PCI compliant.
While there's not much a developer can do if his/her website is running on a basic shared hosting account, people running and managing their own servers will find themselves forced to ensure their servers are PCI compliant.
Noli says: Having gone through this ourselves, I will be sharing the main steps to pass a PCI compliance check by editing a server settings through Web Host Manager (WHM) from cPanel.
This lightning talk is being given by Noli Shelala, of Twin Dots.
This meeting is sponsored by Twin Dots (http://www.twindots.com/) the leading branding, design and development agency in Newmarket. Twin Dots has clients like Cambridge Marketing College, 450 GSM, Racing Welfare, and Devam the jewellers.
