All about remote working

Remote working is the dream, right? No commute, flexible hours, flexible dress code… what’s not to like? Perhaps the reality isn’t so rosy… Join Sean and Greg, two remote workers in two quite different companies, as they share what remote working can really look like.

About our speakers

Greg Sutcliffe has been a sysadmin, DBA, developer, and is now the community manager for an open-source Rails system management project The Foreman. He’s been working from home for Red Hat for over four years and may have gone slightly crazy in the process…

Sean McGivern works on GitLab’s discussion tools, from creating an issue to reviewing the code to fix it. Before this he worked on cloud computing software, and before that he was a much younger person.
