“The talk presents the reality behind a new way of working: working remotely from home. It consists of several observations I have made (together with friends) through over 5 years of delivering software this way.

When I say I work from home, people’s reactions vary from admiration (“I could never force myself to get something done, sitting at home”) through commiseration (“You must miss people and feel ‘at work’ all the time”) to envy (“Oh, you can sleep in then, and do your job in pyjamas”). However, none of these are exactly true.

First, I will describe reasons for working remotely as a programmer. Next I will present a couple of useful habits of the remote worker, and then focus on working effectively in a distributed team.

Working from the home office not only saves commuting time, but can also be a unique opportunity to join an ambitious project you would never have been able to participating otherwise. Finding and picking a remote job opportunity might be a bit tricky, though, so I am going to cover this subject as well.

No one is going to organize your day for you, so what you will need “to survive” are Good Habits of the Remote Programmer(™) which will successfully stop you from burning the midnight oil every night.

Finally, there is a huge difference between just being a remote worker and being a member of a distributed team. I will present some ideas for agile teams working on a distributed basis, accompanied with a bunch of helpful software tools.

Hopefully I will help make your (current or future) home office a comfortable place and prove that this can be a really enjoyable and efficient way of developing software.

Paweł Wrzeszcz is a co-founder of SoftwareMill, where he works (remotely) as a ScrumMaster. Before starting his own business he worked for several companies including JBoss, a distributed start-up, and a large financial enterprise.

In his job he strives to switch freely between focusing on business goals and system users’ needs, and the lines of the (thoroughly tested!) application code. With over 5 years experience in Java EE / JBoss, he also provides consulting and training services.”
