I keep forgetting to post photos I’ve taken, especially after I get back from traveling. In February of this year I had the opportunity of traveling to Hawaii for a VaultPress team meetup. I’ve always wanted to visit Hawaii and was super excited to finally go! It’s what I always imagined Hawaii to be: amazing, beautiful, and very relaxing.
Because Automattic is a completely distributed company, we have 3 or 4 team meetups a year to get together and hangout as well as work on small projects for the week we are together. It’s not a vacation but even though we still have lots of work to do, we make sure we enjoy our time together as well. Here are a few of the pictures from that trip.

What Programming Is Like / Sam Stokes

There’s Just No Time / Paul Jarvis
Pursuing your passions is not about magically creating extra hours in the day, it’s about prioritizing the time you’ve got.

Why are you supporting women in tech?
When you don’t really understand why having more women in technology is important, you don’t extrapolate and realize that having more of every underrepresented minority group is the true goal.
