Engineering Happiness in Brazil: WordCamp Rio de Janeiro and beyond

WordPress.com News

Karen Arnold and Erica Varlese work on the Happiness Hiring team at Automattic, where they hire new Happiness Engineers who support users on WordPress.com and Automattic products. They met with the Brazilian WordPress community last week and wanted to share their experiences.

At Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, we’re working on localizing our support to those who speak Brazilian Portuguese.

What is Aerosinusitis?

Image source: Wikipedia Image source: Wikipedia

Diane A. Safer, PhD of the NYU Langone Medical Center defines Aerosinusitis (also known as Barotrauma) as a “pain or discomfort that is felt with a difference in air or water pressure between the outside environment and the inside of the body.” Meaning, any part of the body where air passes through (ie: nose, ears, lungs) can be affected.
