The Effective Remote Developer



David Copeland talks about what one can do to be at their best as a remote team member, as well as what one needs from environment, team, and company. It's not about technical stuff—it's the human stuff. He also talks about how one can be present and effective when not physically there.


David Copeland is Director of Engineering at fashion start-up Stitch Fix. He's the author of “Rails, Angular, Postgres, and Bootstrap”, "The Senior Software Engineer" and "Build Awesome Command-Line Applications in Ruby".
