Making Remote Teams Work a talk by David Majda

Saturday 16 September 11:50 (30 minutes)

Every development team is at least partially remote these days, which presents a unique set of challenges. How do you set up a collaboration workflow? How do you manage communication and maintain team cohesion without seeing each other in person? How do you deal with the lack of social interaction and serendipity? How do you accommodate people with wildly different work and communication styles, emotional needs, and ideas about work-life balance? And what about hiring and onboarding?

Having led a remote team in a small company for six years, I've experienced these challenges first-hand. In the talk, we’ll go through them (plus a few more), and I’ll describe solutions and guidelines we’ve come up with in our team (including a few that didn’t work). The goal is to provide useful advice you can apply in your work, both as a team leader and as a team member. I would also love to use the talk as an opportunity to start a discussion and learn how others solve similar problems.

I’m a software engineer and engineering manager with a passion for programming languages, web technologies, and software craftsmanship. For the past six years, I’ve led software development at Energomonitor, a small IoT company. Before that, I worked on a dataflow programming language at a startup called Jut and on various projects at SUSE. I also created PEG.js, a parser generator for JavaScript.
