One of the challenges of Automattic being a full-distributed workforce is that we spend most of our time interacting purely in chat form – even with our immediate teammates we spend most of our time with.
One of the ways we ensure our teams work well is we spend a week each year together in person. This lets us do training together, learn from how each other work, and get to know each other a little better.
It also means plenty of time for hanging out and (in the case of my team) eating delicious food. It was a great time getting to know each other better.
