Summer is a great time to be in central Europe because of long days and good weather (when it’s not scorching hot). It is one of the reasons why we hold our mid-year IRL in Ljubljana, the other being that it is close to many Niteans which makes it easier and less expensive to organize.
We’ve had a big tornado of changes happening just before the IRL#5 and the main focus was on implementing these changes and setting the stage for the next six months. The goal: launching WooCart by the end of the quarter and spinning off EBN with its own team. With our prelaunch advertising and competition research, we’ve seen that hosted WooCommerce, or WooCommerce as a Service, is a natural progression for the platform and it’s only a matter of time before someone else launches it. We’ve had experience with launching late in the past and we knew this time we need to be in the front.
In between work, there was also time for a shooting session, some great local food, friends and family picnic, and a late night out.
Looking forward to the IRL#6 in January!
