Photos: Automattic Grand Meetup 2015 in Park City, Utah

For the past week, I was in Park City, UT for an annual company meetup. Here are some photos from the trip, although I don’t think I took enough of them to capture exactly what it was like. I guess that’s not a bad thing, because that means I was too busy being overwhelmed, inspired, excited, and amused by actually being with the great people I (remotely) work with at Automattic.

Now, going back to my regular work schedule & some WordCamp Tokyo prep!

Check out #a8cgm tags on Twitter & Instagram for more photos, tweets, blog posts about the meetup.

Photos: Automattic Table at PHP Conference Japan 2015

Last Saturday, I staffed the Automattic sponsor table with two of my coworkers at PHP Conference Japan. Thanks to the great team of organizers, this conference in Tokyo has been growing in size and popularity year after year.

Since I was around the sponsor area all day, I only saw that part of the event. I still got to listen to a few sessions that took place in the same hall, including the keynote by Rasmus Lerdorf.

If you missed our PHPCON table, I hope to see you at WordCamp Tokyo 2015 (October 31 – November 1)!

This morning, we went to the Tokyo Coffee Festival 2015 at United Nations University.

Out of 10 coffee from different roasters/coffee shops I tried, I really liked:

(I tend to like balanced flavor with minimum acidity)

There were many roasters/shops from outside of Tokyo, and I enjoyed getting a taste of their unique coffee.
