Liquid Weekly

The newsletter by and for Shopify Developers

Karl Says

I started this newsletter to help equip and educate Shopify developers.

Recently I got to know Matt Sodomsky and am stoked about how his app, Mechanic, impacts Shopify development.

Mechanic is often described as Shopify flow on steroids. It's a workflow automation platform with 300 automations ready to go.  Mechanic is also a complete Shopify development platform that replaces the need for many public and custom apps.

Check it out and see if it might benefit your work as a Shopify developer.

Looking for the next 'Slice of Life'

Last week featured a Developer Slice of Life.

Marianne, a developer from Portugal, shared about her typical day as a Shopify developer. To date it's been our most popular content by count of clicks.

I'd like to continue to do these but to do so requires others who would be willing to share a few paragraphs.

Are you willing to share about your typical day?
