This one turned out to be my favorite meetup so far. Why? Because of the way the team worked together to be better at designing together.
Here are a few photos from a June, 2018 meetup in Warsaw, Poland.
Who wouldn’t like living and working in Hawaii for a week in December? Here are a few photos from a December, 2017 meetup in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
We released a few themes we created with Gutenberg in mind. This was my first meetup as team lead, and I had a blast exploring WordPress’ new editing experience with my team.
We only did one pumpkin this year, but it was a fun one!
A few weeks ago, Automattic held its annual Grand Meetup. That’s where the company I work for gathers together in one place for a week to strategize, work and bond. Every year, we throw a party at the end of the week, complete with a photo booth. Piling into the photo booth (or in this case, photo area) has turned into one of my favorite things.
Of course, we also took a serious one.
Between all the work, I had a bit of fun too. A few nice hikes, plus a ride up a mountain in a gondola. We saw a bear! Although, I didn’t snap a great picture of it. One of these days I’m just going to move to the mountains because I love it so much. 🙂
Here’s to another great year at Automattic, surrounded by awesome colleagues with a worthwhile mission!
Recently, my family and I visited Anna Ruby Falls in Georgia because my daughter, Skye, wanted to see a waterfall. We saw not one, but two, and it was lovely!
Does this mean I have to give my cat, Tigger, this case of beer?
This past week, my team at Automattic – the Theme Team, met in Montréal for a week of work, planning for the future and team bonding. We worked hard, had fun and charted a path for the future of the team.
Sadly, I didn’t take as many photos as I normally do. My phone started acting up. It turns out, its battery went bad. The entire phone became swollen and mostly inoperable. 🙁 But I did take a few.
I’m excited to get the projects we worked on launched soon. I’m more excited for the future of our team. It comes with some changes, but I think those will work out in the end.
We went to a few activities as a team, including a spoken story event, painting ceramics and more. As much as I love my work, I love my team even more.
