Over the past few months, the Happiness Engineers of WordPress.com have grown to require separation into sub-teams. Enter the new Core Happiness team: the Happiness Engineers who are focussed strictly on answering support requests and creating/improving documentation.
Earlier this month, the new Core Happiness team met for our very first chance to work together as the new team. We invaded Tybee Island, Georgia, the home town of fellow Automattician Jane Wells, for a week of work, food, and some sightseeing.
As you can imagine, there was a lot of work to do. Since we mostly work on the customer service end of things, you might not see any of the week’s work outright, but you’ll probably notice that we’re able to resolve issues a bit quicker than before.
As for sightseeing, we toured the island itself and bits of Savannah, including River Street and Bonaventure Cemetery. Throughout the trip, I managed to snap a few photos, and you can also sample some of the local delicacies in my tbimeetup2012 tag.
