Automattic is a globally distributed company with over 200 employees, so it’s nice to get together once a year as a company to build great things. This year, we gathered in San Francisco and later migrated down to Santa Cruz. That may sound odd to many of you, so I highly recommend this book. Many of the things we built this week are already live on WordPress.com, some are performance tweaks that you might have already noticed, while others may be announced in the future.
Here are the rest of the photos from the week that didn’t make the cut to be posted on their own in my sfomeetup2013 tag.
A very long time ago, prior to us both working at Automattic, Joen Asmussen sent me a gorgeous print of one of his works as a “thank you” for help on an amazing project which unfortunately never saw public release. A few years later, he graciously requested to I add a nostalgic touch to my office with a second. Both sadly sat in tubes for an unjustified amount of time, but the wait is over! Now that we have completed our move, these pieces from Joen were the first to be hung.
