Hackathon Pre-game Session: Lessons from Transitioning to Remote Work

Whether they’re waiting on offices to reopen or making a permanent move, many people are now navigating the challenges of working remotely. We’re kicking off Hacking from Home: Thriving in a Remote Environment with a deep dive into what it’s really like to make the leap to working remotely.

During this session, Mattermost’s Ali Farooq shares his experience transitioning to a remote work environment and chats with Jitsi founder Emil Ivov about what he wishes he had known before going remote, and what remote teams (and individuals) need to be successful in the long-term.
