Prompted by this article, I am drinking a gallon (3.96L) of water per day. No superpowers yet. I am drinking a lot less coffee though, which is surprising.

Ruby AU

The new Ruby AU site launched today, and it is very pretty. Congrats to the committee on completing a long process of renewal (a process that began about three years ago, if I remember correctly) and thanks to Deming Factor for the fantastic design.

Meetups

Meetups are a pretty key feature of working in a distributed company. They’re how you get to really know your colleagues, how you build a culture, and how you build and sustain relationships with people who are otherwise just text.

Our trip to Mexico was my third meetup, counting our all-company Grand Meetup in September. We got an amazing amount done, which is what happens when you put really clever people in a room for a week and stuff them full of good food.

We also had time for some fun activities, which also mostly centred around food. We visited someone’s home and learned how to make salsa verde, corn tortillas and carne con nopales…

…and we went into the Mayan jungle to zip line through the trees and swim in cenotes.

All in all, meetups are good and if you get the chance to go on one, I highly recommend them.

WCUS

WordCamp US in Nashville was super fun. Met a whole lot of cool developers, customers and fellow Automatticians.

Dinner at Martin’s Bar-B-Que

Even got to visit my spiritual home. Sadly, the Preds weren’t in town though.

Definitely looking forward to visiting again sometime. See you next year in St Louis!

The Hot tenders at Prince’s

Verdict: Prince’s. They were both excellent hot chicken, but as a piece of fried chicken Prince’s was better.
