When I was last in Vienna, I watched my first-ever Automattic Town Hall: an online meeting with the whole company. This was a few weeks before Automattic’s acquisition of WooThemes was publicly announced. We also were provided access to our internal tools in that week, and I found a few of my new colleagues on our system; I have fond memories of meeting them.

Last week, I was on a WooCommerce division meetup in Vienna. About 300 of my colleague gathered en masse for the first time since September 2019, for what – pre-COVID – used to be an annual retreat. We stayed at the Hilton Vienna Park, which was beautifully located next to the Vienna City Park, and had delicious food and tasty cocktails. Dinner highlights were Motto Am Fluss, and Al Zaytouna.

While I took my camera with, it stayed in my bag for most of the time as I was too focused on the different conversations. I did bring it with during one of my strolls through the city centre. Here are some pics of that stroll.
