This year the Automattic Grand Meetup was in Whistler village. The Grand Meetup is an annual event where all workers of Automattic meet in a single place, do new friendships renew some old ones, have fun together and plan the year ahead.
The week started with a big town hall where Matt Mullenweg (our CEO) answer all the questions, it lasted until 2 am. Then for the rest of the week we split into groups doing workshops, projects, and classes. The last two days were dedicated to fun activities: trekking, escape rooms, downhill bikes, beer festival, photo tours, zipline and others. It all finished with a bang with a big party on the last night, even a bear showed up!
