I have some really excited news to share today! Starting August I will be joining WooThemes!
Over the past months I’ve learned that the drive to the office at Yoast is something I really struggle with. I realized that working this far from home, being stuck in traffic multiple hours per day, isn’t something that is going to make me happy in the long run.
Recently a spot opened up in the WooCommerce project and since I’ve always been fascinated about e-commerce and the WooCommerce project and I already knew some people inside the WooThemes team it didn’t take long before we had a talk and not much later the papers were signed. At WooThemes I will mostly do WooCommerce development with Mike, who is now probably happy he didn’t sled me of a cliff in Norway earlier this year 🙂
I’m really excited to start working with the great people at WooThemes and to start working on the WooCommerce project!
This new job also means Post Connector will stop being sold at yoast.com and will be sold from its own website soon. Clients with an active Post Connector license will be offered an update in their WordPress panel (version 1.5.2). Post Connector development will continue like it did and clients won’t notice anything in their WordPress website about this change. Also, the automatic plugin updates will still be served to their website through their WordPress plugin panel like it always did. License keys will remain the same.
