Being a remote developer

Tips and tricks for how to ease into working remotely, will cover common caveats and how to solve them.

By becoming a remote developer you can broaden your horizons, work on something more interesting to you. As a company, you can find better developers, people more interested in what you are doing.

But remote work is difficult. I will speak from my past experience and show you how I've solved some of the issues. I've been a remote developer (part of a team, not freelancer/contractor) for almost 2 years and I'm loving it but the road was bumpy. Missing office gossip and relevant information, working from home or office, less direct contact with fellow team mates, not able to grab a lunch or drinks together and the team spirit are things which need to be nurtured in other ways.

I started using PHP as a student, back in 1999. At first I worked as a one man band web developer and from there I progressed, via focusing on PHP development in a team environment, to be a senior dev, tech lead & technical analyst.

I found much more happiness doing backend stuff so I focus on scalable backends and devops tasks this days.
