Lessons Learned from Working Remote
a talk by Flavio Percoco & Nick Lang

Working Remotely brings a whole new set of challenges. It can be rewarding, challenging, fun and exciting. But it can also be lonely, depressing and frustrating.

We'll focus on some of the negatives and on how you or your employer can work to combat them so you can sit and enjoy all the good that comes with remote working.

This talk dives into the lessons learned from an employee of Elastic, one from Red Hat and other companies that have distributed and remote teams.

This talk is suitable for both beginner and advanced Pythonistas.

Flavio Percoco

I worked on Big-Data-oriented applications, search engines, message systems, contributed to Orca, and created MouseTrap, a head-tracker application.

I work in Red Hat now and spend most of my time hacking on containers and messaging technologies in the OpenStack community.

I'm part of several technical communities and I serve as a Technical Committee member.

Nick Lang

I have been working remote for almost 10 years for companies such as Docker, Elastic and freelancing. Some of it good and some of it bad. Mostly good though.

I feel like through my experience others can learn if remote working is for them or not.
