  12. 12. AVision for SilverStripe Shop We can’t compete with Magento, Shopify, Sylius, or Spree for breadth of features - so what is success? Photo: One to a Box / Aaron Webb / Creative Commons
  13. 13. AVision for SilverStripe Shop Our sweet spot is: • SS developers who need to add simple commerce to an existing site. • SS developers who need to build a larger site using their existing skills for bespoke features. Photo: One to a Box / Aaron Webb / Creative Commons
  14. 14. AVision for SilverStripe Shop We need to focus on: • Stability and quality • Easy install and “just works” with a nice default configuration • Integration with API’s and external services where possible Photo: One to a Box / Aaron Webb / Creative Commons
