It’s easy to assume that all the Tuts+ Editors are sat in Envato’s Melbourne office with the rest of the company — but you couldn’t be further from the truth! Our editor team is based all over the world, with people in the UK, Spain, Australia, and all over the USA.
Last week, the half of the editor team based in the US met for a few days in New York — we worked together, discussed the future direction of Tuts+, saw some of the city, and had the opportunity to meet our amazing readers during the community night!
Read on for an update on our community night, our photo booth video, and a few pictures!
Exciting Projects & Plans
Although we were only in New York for three days, we accomplished a lot! From our beautiful work area looking over at the Rockefeller Center, we were able to enjoy the amazing location along with some great conversation.
The other international Tuts+ editors logged in for a live video conference call both mornings as we discussed editing practices, new types of content, branding preferences, and much more.
We spent lots of time discussing our exciting future plans for the network, and plenty of behind-the-scenes projects that we can’t wait to share with you. It’s going to be an action-packed year for Tuts+!
The Community Night
Without question, the highlight was the Community Night as 50 Tuts+ readers gathered at a lounge right across the street from Central Park. After receiving a free Tuts+ T-Shirt and stickers, we had a pool table, photo booth, bottomless drinks, loads of food, and some incredible networking. It was a great time of connecting with a few of our regular readers and getting feedback on the sites.
Adam and Cameron did a fantastic job of setting up a fun photo booth in one corner of the venue, and we’re really pleased with the resulting video!
I’d like to extend a huge thanks to everyone who took the time to come along and meet the team. It was great fun to see you, and we hope you enjoyed the evening!
See You Again Soon, NYC!
The trip went fast, but it was definitely action-packed! We had a great time in New York, and hope to be back again at some point in the future. If you’d be interested in attending a similar Tuts+ Community Night in your own area, just let us know in the comments!
