The SilviaTerra team has wrapped up another great All Hands meeting. This time around we met in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

All Hands meetings are an important part of keeping our fully remote team connected. We’ve had a fun week eating green chiles on everything, and planning some exciting upcoming development efforts.

Another highlight of this trip was watching roadrunners explore the neighborhood – they’re a lot more common than we expected. Our team’s resident wildlife tracker (biometrician Brian Clough) also taught us the word “zygodactyl” – having two toes pointing forward and two backward – although we didn’t manage to see any roadrunner tracks.
