WordPress Toledo Meetup teamed up with Toledo Web Professionals Meetup to co-promote this talk. E-Commerce talks garner strong interest in our community and a welcomed topic for our members ranging from seasoned professionals to people interested in starting a store. With COVID-19, more and more people are seeing opportunity in the activity of online commerce.
Vagish Vela hosted with style along with 15 members online with us.
Building an e-Commerce store can be a daunting experience. Suddenly you’re not just working with content anymore, now it’s taxes and shipping and customers that need to be kept happy.
Fortunately it doesn’t have to be scary. We’ll look at a number of steps you can take to remove the uncertainty from building e-Commerce websites, so that you can move forward with confidence.
Topher brought great insight into the topic. While BigCommerce is fairly new to the WordPress platform, they have been in the industry providing outstanding service through their SaaS business.
Guest speaker, Topher DeRosia is Senior Developer Advocate at BigCommerce, where he works to enhance the communication between BigCommerce and developers. He brings more than 25 years of experience as a web developer, over a decade of which has been spent building out WordPress sites. In addition, Topher has extensive knowledge of WooCommerce development, helped make Easy Digital Downloads and curates HeroPress.com. Fun fact: Topher is responsible for making the official International Space Station Windows95 desktop theme.
