Day 3: Automattic’s Grand Meetup 2018

See day 2 recap here.

Today the day started with the keynote speech by Cheryl Strayed. She is the author of the best selling book Wild, which was later made into a movie starring Reese Witherspoon. It was a very moving speech.


After chatting with some coworkers and doing some FaceTime with the family back home,

I met with the Happiness Hiring team for our team photo. I’ve been helping with the hiring team for a while now and it’s great to be a part of the process.

Product Management

Today was also the first day of the Product Management course I’m taking. We overlapped with the Business course team for our first day and it was great to learn more about business and product at Automattic.

Later that day I had dinner with three other Automatticians, followed by a meeting with our support coworkers who speak Spanish and Portuguese.

To close the night, I went on a Target run with two coworkers to buy some supplies and later practiced with the band a bit more. It ended up being a bit of a late bedtime 🙂
