Presentation: "Working Remote: Insider Tales of Adaptation at GitHub"

Track: Fun@work/ Distributed Teams / Time: Thursday 15:50 - 16:40 / Location: Estrelsaal C7

You've heard talk about remote working being the "Future of Software Development" but it isn't as simple as hiring smart people in places far away from headquarters. It is a constant balancing and re-balancing of processes, practices, people and tools to keep the entire company working well.

Many thousands of years of in-person communication have primed civilization to work together in close physical proximity, but the digital era is forcing us to evolve and adapt to the new reality of being effective at a distance. Come hear insider tales of what has worked at GitHub as we've scaled to 170 employees, what tactics we've replaced, and even what we're testing out right now.

We believe this remote-working challenge is every bit as difficult as producing great software, but one that all of us at GitHub have had increasing success with. Through sharing these recipes, we are confident you too can harness the delightful benefits of a remote-working culture.
