Writing for HeroPress

Last week I had the honor of writing an essay for HeroPress titled: “W-W-Waiting for the right circumstances“.

The response to it was great (judging by retweets, DM’s, and emails.)

I am absolutely grateful to Topher DeRosia for giving me such an honor. Topher is the awesome guy behind HeroPress.com.

The First WooCommerce Meetup in Cape Town

woo-meetup-social-card_home-1024x538

On 25 Feb 2015, I attended the first (of many to come) WooCommerce Meetup in Cape Town. The event was organised through the meetup.com group with the main topic for the evening being eCommerce in South Africa. Though, the events began with a comical note due to Meetup.com having issues processing online payments for an event focused on online payments, the joys of tech.

The event was held in the Old Biscuit Mill in Cape Town at the The Bello Studio which was a lovely venue with great art adorning the walls – great for striking up conversation and breaking the ice. Turn-out was brilliant, with almost 50 attendees.
