Burnout is a real thing. But is it really dangerous, if yes - in what ways? Software engineers work under pressure, often frustrated. Is it already a burnout or just excess of stress? We often work from home or take work to home. Is a lifestyle or maybe a workplace environment the cause of burnout? How to recognise first signs of burnout? And the most important, how to recover from it and prevent from happening again? You will find answers to those questions in this presentation, based on research and my personal story.
