Life at WPPOOL
In 2023, we actively tried to give back to the WordPress community. So, the year was full of engagements for WPPOOL members.
In May 2023, WPPOOL had the pleasure of participating in the WordCamp Sylhet, where we were able to fully immerse ourselves in the thriving WordPress community. The occasion offered an excellent forum for establishing relationships with other enthusiasts, exchanging knowledge, and networking.
Beyond the enlightening WordCamp experience, our members didn’t miss to dive into Sylhet’s spectacular scenic beauty. The beauty of Shada Pathor and tea states in Sylhet was a great escape from our daily city lives.
In our remote work culture, WordCamp Sylhet gave us a great chance to get together and get to know each other on a deep level. It was an experience that will be cherished by all of us for life.
WPPOOL has also continued delivering on its pledge to contribute 5% of its resources to the WordPress project. We have contributed across 13 teams this year for the betterment of the WordPress community.
Also this year, we made some efforts to connect with our users better. We re-energized our WPPOOL Community on Facebook and are listening to our users regularly.
Looking ahead to 2024
As we continue our journey toward 2024, WPPOOL is dedicated to upholding the caliber of our services by persistently refining our plugins while putting new features and bug fixes into action. We are steadfast in our commitment to provide an exceptional user experience.
We are thrilled to share our ambitious goal to release three new WordPress plugins, each specifically tailored to meet the changing demands of our users and improve the functioning of their websites, in keeping with our dedication to innovation.
Additionally, WPPOOL is hoping to reenter the Shopify area to broaden its footprint and serve more customers. We are hoping to achieve continued support from our users and serve them with better satisfaction in 2024.
