Internet Retailer Conference Exhibition or IRCE is the biggest eCommerce conference in the world. We attended in 2014 for the first time.
The booth this year looks a bit more pro!
Well done KLM for highlighting Norway as a surf destination. Insanely good footage!
Great done footage of some peaks and fjords near Stavanger. Come visit!
Matt Mullenweg kicked off WooConf 2016 in Austin, and gave a good overview of the State of the Woo. Still waiting to hear the story behind the green hair-do.
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.
December 7th was a calm day after one of the most rainy storms in 50 years. Reve Havn had some nice 3-7ft waves rolling in with water temperature about 6 degrees celcius, perfect for winter surfing.
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.
I told the WooThemes story at Internetdagarna in Stockholm.
