Nop-Templates.com year in review
It was an amazing year for Nop-Templates.com. As usual, we have been very busy doing what we do best, developing quality themes and plugins for nopCommerce. But we also did many other things we are certainly proud of. It is that time of the year again when we look back at what we have achieved and start making plans for the year to come.
We have released four new themes for nopCommerce this year – Pavilion, Uptown, Minimal, and Poppy. The Pavilion theme was an overnight success and is our bestselling theme for 2016. We are currently working on another great theme for nopCommerce which will be released at the beginning of next year. So, stay tuned, as we plan to start 2017 in style.
We have released two new plugins for nopCommerce this year – Social Feed and Smart Product Collections. Both plugins are absolutely awesome and deserve your attention. A two-month trial is available, so don’t hesitate to take them for a spin. Apart from developing new plugins, we have also been improving our existing ones. Three of our early pluigns got a major uplift - Mega Menu, Carousel, and Cloud Zoom. We are currently improving the Nop Anywhere Sliders plugin which will be released for nopCommerce 3.90.
The Nop-Templates.com family has grown with four more people this year. We hired three .NET developers and a QA specialist. All four of them are talented professionals and their skills and enthusiasm for work are a great contribution to the company.
To accommodate our growing family, we have doubled our office space. As a result, the “I am going to check the guys upstairs/downstairs” walks have substituted the old-fashioned coffee break.
For a second consecutive year, we have attended the NopDevDays event, which took place in the beautiful city of Amsterdam. Nop-Templates.com co-founders Milen, Boyko and Stefan were among the speakers. Milen shared his insight on what it takes to be a successful nopCommerce vendor and also took part in the discussion panel. Stefan gave practical advice on advanced nopCommerce theme development and Boyko unraveled the mystery of the nopCommerce Web API, developed by our team. The conference was a great opportunity for the nopCommerce community to come together, exchange ideas and share valuable experience. If you wish to learn more, please refer to our digest of the event.
In an effort to popularize nopCommerce locally, Boyko Bonev, one of the Nop-Templates.com co-founders, did two talks about running nopCommerce on Azure one at the Microsoft headquarters in front of the Sofia .NET User Group and the other at the Microsoft Azure Bootcamp event.
At Nop-Templates.com we truly believe that nopCommerce is an amazing solution, which with contributions from the community can easily turn into the best open-source platform for e-commerce. Therefore through the years we have made regular contributions to the system. Last year we designed the new nopCommerce default theme and the new nopCommerce official site. This year we have developed and contributed the long-awaited Web API. This is a major step forward because it is now possible to easily integrate nopCommerce with external software.
We celebrated our 5th birthday this year. It is said that a startup can be considered an established company after five successful years in business. So, for us, this birthday has been special. We have come a long way and all this would not have been possible without you, our tech-savvy and dedicated partners and followers. Therefore, we would like to extend our most sincere gratitude to all who have trusted and supported us throughout the years.
To celebrate this special year with you, we have a 20% holiday discount on all products. You can also use the discount to renew your support and upgrade licenses. We wish you, your family and friends all the best for the Holidays, and a very Happy New Year.Get Cupon Code
