Thanks for the insight into the remote work practices presented in an user friendly way. I was at the meetup, yesterday.
I had attended few freelancing meetups locally (I live in Bangalore, S.India) that promoted the idea of working from home and from co-working spaces. Working totally from home for 5+ years is cool. The best aspect is (I think) being close to your spouse and children .
This concept was catching up right from the early 2000’s where corporations in USA were starting to have their project managers (software industry) work from home offices; I think in an effort to save resources like office space and commuting. Also the technology provided the means (better communications, conferencing, etc) and with newer management techniques.
No matter what, remote working is the way of future!
