Every year, the company I work for (Automattic), gather all its (~400) employees and brings them all together into a single location for a week of cowork, workshops, activities, etc. It’s what we call the Grand Meetup. I have just returned from my first one, in Park City, Utah, and I’m still trying to recover from it.
My favorite moments:
· Calypso roundtable: After having one initial Calypso (the project I’m working on) townhall, where more than 70 persons shown up, the developers decided that we needed another more intimate meeting to discuss code stuff. Around 15 or 20 of us meet in @Matias & @Miguel room, and we talked about architecture & code styles for almost 4 hours.
· Fellow automatticians playing ‘Creep’ & ‘This Charming man’ live in the closing party:
· Being around some of the most talented designers & developers in the world for a whole week
PS. If you want to be there next year, Automattic is hiring
