When we usually read tips for launching products successfully, it was interesting for me to read this post about a plugin update which went really badly. David Gewirtz shares his experiences of adopting a plugin with around 50k installs and working in updating it, taking him about 360 hours of labor and costing him around $1000, only to find his update broke a lot of non-profit sites ( it was a donation plugin ).


On the flip-side, Matt Medeiros talks about his successful product launch and shares some tips. “I created a WordPress plugin and sold $4k of licenses in the 1st hour of launch.”

Finally, it’s always cool to read about people venturing out on their own with their businesses, this week Barry Kooij, formally of WooCommerce wrote a post about his decision to leave Woo and focus on his own plugins full-time, I wish him all the best.

Here’s the rest of the news from the past week …
