The craziness of the Automattic Grand Meetup is now behind us. An action packed week of workshops, classes, town halls, flash talks, team building activities and tasty meals over good conversation with new work colleagues.
It really is a surreal week. Throughout it you are completely overwhelmed by the scale of it all – borderline burned out by the constantly busy schedule. Burnout likely influenced by the 30 hour commute to Canada and a 9 hour time difference… Looking back at it you realise how special and unique this diverse team, distributed company and unforgettable experience is.
I lugged about 10kgs of camera equipment from Cape Town to Whistler, Canada for the trip. Very excited about being in such a photogenic part of the world. I ended up taking a measly about of photos 🙁 Below are a few of them.
