GM 2015

Just came back from the Grand Meetup, a week-long annual event that Automattic puts together for all its employees. This year there were almost 400 of us, and we all stayed in the Grand Summit Resort, just outside of Park City, Utah.

We all work remotely, so it’s a great opportunity to have some face-to-face time, rub elbows, share experiences, and just chill with each other.

This year we were delighted to have a goodbye party on the last night, with a fantastic live concert from a few talented Automatticians, topped with a surprise act by The Jane Doze. Fun times!

    Hi Keoshi, I was very impressed with your new blog look on the wordpress, the picture just stands out and really are stunning. May I know what theme do you use this blog with?

    • Hey Bobby, thanks a lot! It’s appropriately called mutelife-v4 and I’ve designed it specifically for my blog. I don’t have any plans to release it because there’s a bunch of custom stuff that I’ve coded, but I’ll see what I can do in the near future. :)
