It’s been a busy week for remote working fans and first-timers with all of the safety measures being put in place for COVID-19. Here are some of the better links I’ve found recently:
- Matt Mullenweg: Coronavirus and the Remote Work Experiment No One Asked For: “This is not how I envisioned the distributed work revolution taking hold.”
- Austin Kleon: A working from home manual in disguise: “Here are 10 tips taken straight from the book, along with excerpts and quotes”
- The Staying Home Club (that’s stayinghome.club, nice): A list of all the companies working from home
- Ian Sanders: How to Work at home
- Gitlab’s remote working guide
- Protocol Source Code’s remote tips from Amir Salihefendic
More to come, I’m sure!
Update March 13, 2020:
