Hi! I build software, present at conferences (see more under Projects and Publications), and help organize community events. You can learn more about me at www.marlazeschin.com.Prior to writing software, I led several agile transitions as a scrum master. While the skills I acquired from this experience are tremendous assets to my work as a developer and consultant, I am not interested in any scrum, project management, or product owner roles.View the profile
About the talk
RailsConf 2019 - Things I Wish I Knew Before Going Remote by Marla Brizel Zeschin
Remote work is just like working in an office - minus the soul-crushing commute. How hard could it be?
Spoiler: it's actually pretty hard.
When I went remote, I was so excited to not pack a lunch that I didn't consider the implications of a quasi-reliable Internet connection or the psychological impact of spending so much time at home.
As it turns out, going remote isn't just trading a highway commute for a hallway one. It requires new skills and a mindset shift. In this talk, you'll learn how to assess your needs as a remote worker and gain a set of tools to help you succeed for the long term.
