Automattic gets the whole company together once a year for seven days so that employees can meet in person, work on projects, take classes and hang out together. It’s extremely important because we all work from home on a daily basis and see each other mostly online. Last year I had a lot of fun at the Grand Meetup in Park City, Utah and this year it felt even better to be around almost 500 Automatticians in Whistler, British Columbia.
Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Whistler is a Canadian resort town in the Coast Mountains in the province of British Columbia. It hosted most of the alpine, Nordic, luge, skeleton, and bobsleigh events during the 2010 Winter Olympics. Although it is primarily known for alpine skiing and snowboarding in winter, it has also a lot to offer in summer with mountain biking at Whistler Blackcomb being the thing.
