#03 Fresh AMA with Noel Tock

Noel Tock is a WordCamp Europe Organizer. He had plenty to share in this AMA. Does WordPress have a chance to make its way into the enterprise market? “There’s still a lot of work to be done for enterprise. It’d be nice if the consumer-success translated to board rooms, but there’s a lot more ground work to be done there as individual companies and as a professional community (sales, marketing, white papers, associations, etc.),” he said.

He also discussed why we should you be flexible and where is the right home for WP Remote. That and more you can read about here.
