This presentation will include tips and techniques I have developed for working effectively as a remote software developer and manager.
I have worked full-time remote for a most of my career, and I have experienced many challenges. Communication is more difficult, motivation is hard to find, and distractions are everywhere. I'll highlight these challenges and provide actionable techniques to avoid them.
This presentation will involve audience participation, so come prepared to share you recent successes and failures about working from home.
