When I first started to consider asking Cate DeRosia if she would be interested in being interviewed, I thought she might have something interesting to say to the WordPress world. This interview far exceeded any expectations I had.
This interview was done at WordCamp Jackson, where we were able to find a quite place in between sessions.
Cate talks about being the spouse of a remote WordPress developer. She discusses attending WordCamps and getting to know people in the Community she had only heard about and building her own relationships.
We discuss raising children in the digital age, the steps taken to protect them and letting children find their own way. Cate talks about taking their children to WordCamps and how they forged their own relationships in the WordPress Community.
