Just a question slightly off topic, but what is the scenario these days. Do folks work remotely or go into offices. I take it that we are all from different parts of the world. I am just curious because here in South Africa, we have until the end of the year for the ‘jab’. As I am unemployed, this does not affect me, but it looks like that the way going forward here is remote work.
I am asking because when I get enough knowledge, it would suit me to work remotely (also because I live in a small town many miles from any major city).
Remote or office based?
- Fully remote
- Mostly remote
- Slightly more remote
- About 50/50
- Slightly more office based
- Mostly office based
- Fully office based
- Other - please say in thread
Sounds like a good candidate for a dedicated topic Dimitri - have moved your post into a new thread and have added a poll to it
I’m a network engineer, not a dev, so I won’t pollute the poll with my answer. But I’ve been remote for about six years and honestly would love to start going back into the office to get some in-person human interaction with more than just my kids.
I have to drive about 50 minutes to get to my office, so working from home has been nice, but I do miss chatting in person with coworkers, white-boarding problems, etc. I don’t miss that drive, though, so I’d only go in once or twice a week.
If I lived in a city where I could walk to work or just hop on a bus/subway–like Stockholm–I would absolutely love going into the office. #lifegoals
I’ve worked remotely for around 5-6 years now, but for companies that have offices local. I don’t do the commute often because it would add up to 10+ hours a week, but for quarterly roadmap planning and team building events it’s close enough for me to show up.
I like it because I get my own quiet office space, and can choose when I want to go into a shared workspace.
