    WordCamp US 2017Speakers: Elizabeth Urello, Zandy Ring

    December 10, 2017 — Those of us who collaborate on websites work with coworkers, employees, and freelancers who often aren’t in our office, our city, or even in our country.

Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, is fully distributed, which means all of our communication is entirely online. If we can do it, so can you!
