The Grand Meetup

2017 Automattic Grand Meetup

Every year we get together as a Company, all of Automattic, and we have an incredible week together. It’s really hard to describe this event because you really have to experience it to understand. For a week brilliant and creative people get together and collaborate, learn, take classes, do projects, share experiences and make memories. We do this all over the world, this year it’s in Whistler Canada. If you are on Twitter or Instagram, you can checkout the hashtag #a8cgm to get a taste of the awesome.

Today, Day 2, started with a 5K around Lost Lake with a group of Automatticians. There were a few events during the day, along with a lot of great time with my team for Team Day.

I’ll be adding photos here during the GM.

Another exciting thing about today was the announcement about the iPhone X. Oh man. Solid glass front, face recognition, wireless charging, camera improvements and more. I cannot wait until the October 27th pre-order date. I will be up at 3AM to place my order. I am tempted to get the Watch as well, the idea of not needing my phone for my watch to work is incredible. I am excited about that.

I’ll be posting more through out the week.
