PrestaShop BarCamp 5 Rocked!
Shipwire attended the PrestaShop BarCamp 5 event in NYC this year and had an awesome time. Our own Kenny Lim was there and had a chance to meet with quite a few developers and ecommerce merchants to discuss their needs and to learn how they’re using Shipwire for their order fulfillment.
What is BarCamp 5?
PrestaShop’s 5th edition of BarCamp brought together the users and developers of PrestaShop to discuss new tools and releases surrounding the PrestaShop ecommerce platform. Starting at 9am, speakers took the stage to talk about subjects ranging from marketing and design to customer retention and mobile platforms. There are lots of great talks, too – Tim Shulz, a member of Google’s mobile commerce team, was this year’s keynote speaker.
PrestaShop did an excellent job of welcoming each partner and guest and even had several booths set up to provide information for PrestaShop users. All the booths were set up by partners and affiliates to help PrestaShop users answer questions and resolve issues dealing with ecommerce. Among many others, booths were set up by Avalara, Authorize.net, and of course Shipwire.
Kenny Takes the Stage
Kenny spoke about the fundamentals of growing a global business and how Shipwire can help merchants save time and money. You can view a version of Kenny’s presentation here.
After Kenny’s presentation, PrestaShop held an award ceremony which included some awesome gifts (iPad 3 anyone?) and was followed by a cocktail mixer topped off with some champagne. PrestaShop users and developers got to talk and mingle with the panelists and share some great ideas.
