Published on

Telework isn’t just another day at the office, except without the office. Dispersed teams have their own rhythms and dynamics, and successful remote workers draw on an array of tools to stay productive, motivated, and in sync with their team members. Based on real-world experience and interviews with dozens of remote workers, this talk will introduce you to some of the basic tools and practices you need to succeed as a remote developer.
