Massive WordPress eCommerce savings for next 24 hours

A quick heads-up for anyone who is interested in WordPress eCommerce – Jigoshop, a client of mine, is holding a massive 1st birthday celebration sale for 24 hours, until 12 noon GMT on Thursday, June 14th, 2012.

I don’t often pimp client activity on here, but considering the core plugin is free, and all official Jigoshop extensions and themes are 30% off for the next day, I thought it was justifiable.

So if you’re interested in setting up a WordPress eCommerce store quickly and easily, and fancy saving on a number of great themes and plugins (a total of 42 are in the sale), then check out what’s on offer now.

Open source development, forking and GP licences

I’ve spent the last 24 hours concentrating on some work for friends and clients, Jigoshop regarding their use of the GPL Licence V3 and the repercussions of ‘forking’ a project under that licence, so if you’re at all interested in open source, you might want to head over and read the latest post to see what’s going on.
