Automattic Grand Meetup

My first few weeks working at Automattic (WordPress.com) have been great. As I mentioned previously; I spent my first three weeks on customer support (like everyone else), and this week I am in Park City, Utah for our annual all company meetup (Automattic Grand Meetup).

Since Automattic is a 100% distributed company with about 400 staff across 36 countries, it’s important to have face-to-face contact a few times a year, and this is the biggest meetup where everyone from across the globe comes together. Other meetups throughout the year are for teams or projects and are much smaller.

Park City is a very pretty place, I’ve enjoyed my time here. Here’s some of my photos.
