How to Survive an eCommerce Project
This is a really fun presentation from Joomla Day Atlanta.
E-commerce projects are really difficult. In fact, they can be so difficult that website developers who specialize in e-commerce are often jokingly called masochists. Deb Cinkus is one of those developers.
In this video, Deb takes us on a visual journey through many potential e-commerce project pitfalls. If you’re really interested in project management in the open source area, check out UpStream, a WordPress project management plugin.
Deb works at Polished Geek in North Carolina. She’s going to provide solutions to problems from taking payments and to paying taxes to avoiding feature creep and other distractions.
Overview of the Presentation
Deb’s presentation takes you through eight obstacles that e-commerce projects must overcome:
- Payment Peak
- Credit Card Canyon
- Shipping Station
- Feature Festival
- Buy it Now Boulevard
- Taxes Tollroad
- Social Media Soiree
- By-the-Way Blog
Watch the video below to find out how to avoid all of these problems.
Is the video missing, or is it just me?
Sorry, Thaddeus. Looks like it was a caching issue. Could you check again?
Yay! Fixed. Thank you.
Thanks for posting this! Is there any way you could send us a copy of the video file so we can try to do some audio leveling? The sound is pretty bad and extremely variable due to the placement of the mic in the room. I’d like to see if we can improve the clarity of the audio if you can send us the video file. 🙂
