I liked what I saw on NopDevDays. Believe me, our first conference with 65 attendees and 5 speakers is a great start for our product. I was sure that everyone taking a speech was an expert in nopCommerce. And I am happy that they chose nopCommerce!
The next year will be big for nopCommerce. I will go far beyond the good code and turn to the community and organization. Together we will join our efforts and make nopCommerce community grow in numbers, without lowering the quality. I was always proud, that our dedicated community produced good and helpful code. It goes well with the spirit of open source. Also I am so glad that we were very professional, but still relaxed and friendly. The hackaton and discussion panel which followed the conference generated lots of ideas and strengthened our partnership.
Speaking practically, I made up my mind to organize nopCommerce conferences each year. Analyzing your feedback, I am sure that it will be a two-day conference. One day will cover the needs of developers and the other will be dedicated to user experience, marketing and guidance for partners and sales specialists.
But the key person in shaping of the nopCommerce future is YOU. No matter who you are: developer or store owner, feel free to communicate with growing nopCommerce team. We need your stories, experiences and feedback on using nopCommerce! The agenda of next conference and the general future of product depends on you.
It would be great if you could share the news about the conference on your Twitter and Facebook accounts (please use hashtags #nopCommerce #ecommerce #retail).
