"In the past year we've crept more and more out of our cyber shell and attended an increasing amount of WordPress events and ecommerce events. The response to all things WooCommerce has been tremendous but the need users have for collaboration and assistance is abundant. We recognize that there are limitations to what we can do for our users on WooThemes.com and thus want to create space for users (developers and store owners) to connect, help one another and see what emerges. Simply put, amazing things happen when people come together." Jeremy Andrews
