Director of Engineering, GetHealthy
Toyin Akinmusuru is the Director of Engineering at GetHealthy, and an acknowledged expert in the eCommerce solutions, Magento and WooCommerce.
Toyin has earned a reputation of creativity in designing solutions for technical problems. His regard for the user experience and customer needs have evolved over years of planning and developing interactions for eCommerce solutions.
An avid technologist, Toyin is the Organizer of the WooCommerce Meetup and Co-Organizer of the Austin WordPress Meetup.
After several years preparing large sites with popular e-commerce systems for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we got sick of the headache and started experimenting and find a better approach.
Just like running WordPress as a headless CMS allows increased flexibility and creativity in presentation of web sites, a headless WooCommerce implementation allows e-commerce transactions to operate at higher scale.
We will discuss ideal situations in which one might want to take this approach, and the different methods to achieve scale and the benefits and tradeoffs related to these approaches. In addition, we will discuss how to use Siege, Blitz.io and other automated testing systems to benchmark this approach compared to conventional WooCommerce implementations.
