An Update: It‘s available on LeanPub!
The book is now available at LeanPub ➙ https://leanpub.com/softwarepeopleworkfromhome.
@MaikNog and I (@S_2K on Twitter) are preparing a community e-book, similar to Viv Richards’ (who agreed to contribute to this one. Yay!) wonderful “Around the World with 80 Software Testers“.
It’s entitled “Software People … Work From Home — Insights & Experiences From Planet Earth” and it will contain reports about life and work in these times of lockdown, personal limitation and remoteness. They are personal experiences, unfiltered authentic … and safe for work. 🙂 I would love each contribution to be easily seen as the work of a person, the human behind the words. This is intended to be a very humane collection of individual works covering one topic.
Folks have already promised to contribute material – and here’s a map marking the countries: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1riRbKTZMGdwShPZJ0f884CIbXFD2Vhli&usp=sharing
If you identify as a software person and would like to contribute, we (@MaikNog and @S_2K) would like to hear (or read) from you — especially (but not exclusively!) if you’re not from one of the countries marked in that map.
All the best to you and yours — stay healthy (or a speedy recovery, should that be needed)
Update on 27th April 2020: The name changed, the map is updated and the description more precise..
Update on 10^th^ May 2020: Updated the map, now including Greece and Italy. Thank y’all!
I’m looking for a new software testing project in a team that allows (or expects) remote work and uses Ruby and/or Rails. Getting to use Elixir is a bonus. Limited travelling is possible.
I’m looking for a new project. Under “Work with me” you can get some information about me, like work examples and even an ‘old-fashioned’ profile. But that’s only a part of the story: I think the project purpose should match the team members’ personal values. Therefore, it makes sense to describe my ideal next project team; my “dream team” so to say.
So what does that dream team look like?
It’s a diverse team: People come from various fields, there are programmers, administrators, designers, maybe a tester… whatever the projects needs. People also come from all over the place (read: Earth), have different levels of experience and skill. As PicardTips has put it on Twitter:
The team has started to follow agile practices, but wants to get better at agile and/or lean development. It experiments with new ways of achieving the goal of the project. It also found ways to work together well as a distributed team, even though it may be spread across time zones. It also values working remotely.
If this resonates with you, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
