My how time flies! We’ve had two excellent WooCommerce meetups in Vancouver since the last time I wrote a recap, sharing more knowledge than a Wikipedia page. I attempted to condense the wisdom of Joey and his talk about best practices for your WooCommerce store.
This meetup! This meetup was a perfect storm! It was brilliant! It ended up being brilliant, despite all the things that went wrong. We learned about using plugins and getting plugins to play nicely with each other, and picked up other nuggets of wisdom along the way.
The first WooCommerce meetup in Australia was held on September 24th, and I was sent down to Melbourne to share the Prospress love and chat all things WooCommerce. Just under 25 locals attended the first meetup which was held in the office of the Emote Digital team. There were many familiar faces amongst the crowd (some of whom I have met previously overseas at #WooConf, and here in Australia at previous WordCamps).
This Monday we had our September London WooCommerce meetup, hosted by Realex Payments. With Marina out of town, it was up to Elliot and myself to orchestrate everything.
The London meetups usually start out with networking, talking amongst each other, consumption of refreshments. We planned a Q&A session where those who came could ask questions, and we’d try to answer them using our collective knowledge about all the things: Paul and Alan from Realex about the nitty gritty of payments, Elliot about the business cases, and myself mostly about developer focused topics.
