I recently gave a short presentation on how to choose the right eCommerce platform and payment service for your online business, and also a history of my journey with Woo.
Our long search for a plot of land to build our dream house on came to an end in March 2016, when finally found the perfect location only a short walk from our current house.
And now, almost a year later we are getting close to starting the building process. We are excited to see it become a reality!
We are a remotely distrubuted “work-from-home” company with almost 500 invididuals, and this is our yearly retreat for some valuable facetime. Gathering everyone for a photo is proving to be more of a mission every year.
The whole WooTeam is in Berlin getting some valued facetime together, celebrating 1 year with Automattic. Thursday was an eventful day which started off with presentations from Mark and Myself, a town hall and a Q&A with Matt.
Today is the one year mark of Woo being acquired and us joining Automattic! It has been a great ride so far and time has flown fast, so we must be having fun.
Our team is meeting up in Berlin in July for the final WooTrip to celebrate and get some valuable facetime.
Cheers to the future!
Well done KLM for highlighting Norway as a surf destination. Insanely good footage!
Loved this TEDx Talk by Norwegian comedian Harald Eia on why socialist Scandinavia is a breeding ground for rich people.
Talking to agencies like Dekode, Maksimer and Making Waves, it is good to hear WordPress gaining momentum in Norway and making a shift against proprietary CMS’s like Episerver for the enterprise clients.
We use BuiltWith to measure WooCommerce growth and compare to our competition. They just updated their entire database which includes 332 million domains, and WooCommerce just passed a million websites (up from 900k). The new number is 1,111,882 sites running WooCommerce which is close to WordPress.org usage stats of 1+ million sites with the plugin installed.
This is pretty amazing for an eCommerce platform which is just over 4 years old, but shows the powers of open source and WordPress.
