A Reaction Action: February Recap

This month’s edition of our global flagship event was a special one. Last week’s Reaction Action livestream took place during our annual all-hands week, which meant that our entire distributed team (now 11 strong!) was on-site in sunny Santa Monica, listening in on the discussions and connecting with our global community. Hosts Aaron Judd and Sara Hicks were joined by special guests Jeremy Shimko (@jshimko) and Brent Hoover (the one and only @zenweasel), while attendees hailed from all corners of the world, including countries such as Columbia, Nigeria, Greece, Germany, and Ukraine.


During the broadcast, Brent gave a preview our v0.19.0 release, which features a major revamp of the dashboard, as well as integration with Avalara tax reporting and Shippo, a multi-carrier shipping platform. Aaron discussed our 2017 product roadmap and the progress of marketplaces, and the whole team took turns answering inquiries.
