The last few couple of weeks proved quite fantastic for us at WPCouple and brought some great news. Be it Matt Mullenweg tweeting about WPCouple or hosting the largest ever giveaway in the history of WordPress ;WPCouple has managed to find a suitable fit in the WordPress community in very less time. We’ve promised to discuss everything that couples well with WordPress and today we have some inside scoop from our very own Chris Lema.
So far, 2016 has been a hip-hop year for WordPress because our community has several reasons to rejuvenate and rejoice. A few days ago, WooCommerce completed its first year after being acquired by Automattic, WordPress turned thirteen so, it is a teenager now, and once again we’re here to celebrate another great cause. But this time, it’s a double treat. The big news is:
With the right mix of minor to major functionalities, WordPress developers are building products for clients as well as for themselves. The most native procedure is, you develop a theme or a plugin locally and then host it somewhere. GitHub is that somewhere which has become a popular choice for most professional developers over the years. The fact about Git being preferred despite the WordPress core still using SVN for version control tells all the pros that are associated with it.
It’s been less than a month has WooCommerce has completed its first year after being acquired by Automattic. According to the most recent stats from BuiltWith, WooCommerce powers nearly 37 percent of all eCommerce website globally and has a current customer base of more than 14 million downloads. These mind-boggling stats have made one thing quite sure, that eCommerce is going to set new records for WordPress, and both will witness a tremendous growth in future. So, any recurring business which deals with eCommerce seems to have a progressive future.
