hellodev at WordCamp US 2016

hellodev is excited to announce that it is going to be present at this year’s WordCamp US in Philadelphia, from Dec. 2nd to 4th, represented by our CTO, Marcel Schmitz. It will be an important participation for our company, where we will be able to connect with other people and companies from abroad, and also enjoy all the fabulous talks and bring all the knowledge acquired back to the company and co-workers.

This is also a bigger and bolder statement of our commitment towards WordPress and the community. Marcel is going to be available throughout the event to meet whoever is interested and wants to know a bit more about our work and contribution or just to talk about WordPress and thereby creating synergies.

We will take with us our two most recents apps related to WordPress, with the goal of letting people know about them and collect feedback to improve then further. They are WooManager, an app that enables you to control your WooCommerce online store, and hellosys (coming soon), an app where you can manage your WordPress install by updating plugins, WordPress code, get stats info on responsiveness, and other features.

You will be able to follow all Marcel’s activity through our website, Facebook or Twitter. At the end of the conference we will write a post about how it went and every single bit we learn from it. Stay tuned!

We have launched several products in CodeCanyon from Envato, exclusively for WooCommerce®, but today we present a product released for iOS which also involves WordPress.

It uses an universal plugin called WP REST API that is going to merge into WordPress core this December and that is available for now for free on the WordPress Plugin Directory. This app allows you to show posts, images and information about the author. Support for other type of information will be gradually added. It also uses two open source libraries called Alamofire (to handle the communication with your server) and ObjectMapper (that helps to get the WordPress models translated to their Swift equivalents) added through pods included in the zip file.

Features:

– Loads images asynchronously in different sizes and stores them in a simple cache system built in for faster loading
