In The Netherlands we have 12 meetup groups (one for each province). It started in 2013 in Amsterdam and we have now organized over 60 meetups accross the country covering many topics like SEO, E-mail marketing, Extensions, Payment providers, New Relic, MageFlow, Hosting etc. etc.
As developers we are all stubborn and think we know best. Myself and Sander are no exception so we asked ourselves "How would we build a system to give you the freedom of your side projects but the power of a big ecommerce system".
At first it was a proof of concept for Moltin (a fully api based commerce system) but over time while working on the system we thought why not make it much more. The aim is to have a framework that you control and simply plugin a bridge to the API based ecommerce system of your choice.
We do not fully know where this roller coaster will take us but are happy to be on it!
