Andy Skelton, one of my colleagues at Automattic, also recently returned from his sabbatical and wrote a quick post about what it was like to come back. I echo this thought in specific:
Automattic can change a lot in just three months. People come and go, projects advance, priorities evolve. Three things are making the reintegration easy: full documentation, good search and great coworkers. It’s good to be back.
It absolutely is good to be back, even if I’m having to relearn what day it is sometimes. I’ll post more on what my sabbatical was like later, but if you want to hear my thoughts on it before I took it, you can find those here.
And if what you read interests you at all, a gentle reminder that we are hiring.
