Automattic Grand Meetup Flash Talk 2016

Every year, at the Grand Meetup, each Automattician is required to give a presentation that is a maximum of 4 minutes long and the topic can be over anything. 

This year, I decided to give a short presentation over our family trip to Niagara Falls. But, since I only had 4 minutes, I was only able to cover Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds.

This year I pre-recorded my talk to avoid issues with embedded videos. I made one mistake in the video where I mentioned Ontario Falls instead of Bridal Veil Falls. 

All in all, it wasn’t too bad.

Heading to Whistler

The third day of the trip was our travel day from Bowen Island to Whistler Village. We spent the morning doing a bit of work, then took the ferry to meet up with some Automatticians from Seattle on their way to Whistler.

One of the most interesting parts of the day, besides the obvious catching up with ~500 coworkers, was when Michael Arestad, Stephane Daury, and Matt Mullenweg pulled up in their muddy Jeeps after driving almost coast-to-coast across Canada.
