This past weekend I had the opportunity to travel to WordCamp NYC.
This was a great opportunity for several reasons because I was able to meet some of my coworkers for the first time and I was able to experience NYC.
I even made some people happy by fixing their WordPress issues at the Happiness Bar.
Because Automattic is a distributed company, and I just started three weeks ago, WordCamp NYC was the first time I had met many of my coworkers in person.
This was a real treat as Automattic is comprised of many interesting individuals.
Take Spencer Berry for example who can YoYo like a beast without while also holding a conversation.
I also had the pleasure of meeting many other Automatticians such as:
- Kevin Conboy
- Alx Block
- Erica Varlese
- Richard Spees
- Mel Choyce
- Konstantin Obenland
- JR Tashjian
I feel like the conference worked out pretty well where there was plenty of work, social time, and exploring. Not only did I have the chance to experience some great BBQ, chicken, and local pizza…
But, I was also able to see Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, and the 9/11 memorial.
Here are some various pictures from around NYC.
