Disco was founded by Gavin in 2013 after he realised the engineering skills he was applying to his own online store were valuable to others.

Since then, we’ve helped dozens of clients improve the way their businesses use Shopify to make money. We’ve worked with small one-person startups and large corporates, released numerous open-source projects, and written courses teaching others how to successfully build sites and applications on Shopify.

Disco now specialises in application development for the Shopify platform and helping high-volume businesses make the transition to Shopify Plus.
