Pippin Williamson on Sandhills’ Acquisition, Emerging Threats and Opportunities — Post Status Draft

Pippin Williamson, Founder and Managing Director of Sandhills Development, announced today that Awesome Motive has acquired his company — including their whole team and plugin portfolio: Easy Digital Downloads, AffiliateWP, Sugar Calendar, WP Simple Pay, and the Payouts Service. Syed Balkhi, Founder and CEO of Awesome Motive, noted the deal includes several free plugins as well. From the Sandhills leadership team, Chris Klosowski, Andrew Munro, and Phil Derksen will be joining Awesome Motive as partners, and Chris will continue to lead Easy Digital Downloads.

Pippin, however, intends to take a very long break from WordPress and software development.

Sitting down with Cory Miller for some reflection on the past and thoughts about the future in the WordPress space, Pippin offered advice to developers and product owners today. He also identified what he sees as the biggest threat emerging for WordPress today.
