During this first video, Heather says she finds it fantastic to be a woman in tech, and that you don’t need to be a computer scientist to be in a tech company.
I think there’s never been a better time for women to be in technology than right now.
She also discussed how in the near-term, we at WP Engine are doubling down on building out our platform—our “secret sauce.”
This second clip focused on blogs, with Heather arguing that blogs are an essential part of business and communications with all of your audiences. She said:
Blogs are key for bringing out the humanity of your brand.
Heather explained that blogs allow for long-form content, where you can talk about a product launch or an event you have coming up. She also talked about how WordPress is enabling any type of web content imaginable:
WordPress is like a box of legos, you can do anything with it.
