How to Design Software for Remote Working
With many of us now thrust into remote work - for who knows how long - the need for remote-friendly software and apps is now front-and-center. Twitter announced they're allowing their troops to work from home forever and Facebook expects half of their 48k employees to work from home over the next five to ten years.
