Last night, I had the pleasure of presenting to the Toronto Area DNN Users Group (a.k.a., TADUG), hosted by Aderson Oliveira.  TADUG is currently enjoying a revival, so I couldn’t pass up this opportunity.  He asked me to bring some e-commerce goodness to their user group, and I hope I delivered.  In this presentation and Q&A, we discuss some of the most critical trends and techniques that e-commerce website owners should remember.  Spoiler alert…  There are actually 6 tips in this presentation.  Surprise!

Get Rewarded in the Hotcakes Commerce Community

Upendo Ventures is all about Community

The Hotcakes Commerce community was recently restored a few months ago when version 3.0 was released.  This was welcomed with a lot of enthusiasm since our community was once very large and strong.  There was a bit of gamification in the previous community, and we wanted to ensure that we still had that kind of experience with the new one.  This article will help you get to know a bit more about the new community features that give you rewards.

Upendo Ventures Is Excited to Welcome Hotcakes Commerce Customers

Upendo Ventures Loves Hotcakes Commerce

When I founded Upendo Ventures, it was in my heart to build a business that mirrors my values and how I believe we should all treat each other as human beings.  For anyone that knows me, you’ll know that this train of thought has been at the core of everything I’ve ever done – including those menial tasks that none of us love to do.  This was also reflected in my hard work with Hotcakes Commerce, where I loved helping to make e-commerce easier for everyone.  With Hotcakes going open source, it begs the question, “Where and how will I get support now?”  For anyone that’s enjoyed or been interested in the Hotcakes Cloud, you’ll have this and other similar questions.
