Companies are increasingly embracing the idea of “remote” teams. But what does that mean? How different is being remote from a “normal” office environment, and does it actually work? What are the benefits and the downsides? And most importantly: how can a team work well together remotely? In this talk, I’ll discuss what Stack Overflow’s remote team looks like on a day-to-day basis, problems with both remote and non-remote environments, and how to blend both together. Attendees will learn how everyday activities can be modified to fit a remote context, and how to create strong team bonds.
