  1. I've been working remotely for 2 years now and I cannot imagine getting back to office corpo life. There are however limitations, it's not recommended to everybody.
    1. Have at least 2 years of working expierience with pro developers
    2. Don't be extrovert 😉
    3. Self-employment highly recommended
    4. Have lots of self-confidence
    5. Learn new technologies on your own

    Good luck, I hope remote programming will become a standard soon

  2. Thanks for all your advice and sharing your experiences. I think it will be very useful to a lot of people new to the industry and also experienced programmers. I really like your videos. 🙂

  3. If i will work remotely i would just find a co working space and basically work in an office.. the difference would be just the flexibility to change city often.

  4. Hi Patrick, thanks for this video. I really appreciate your serious advice here. Remote development work is truly my dream and I am working on trying to get there. While I'm not sure I would want to do it forever, I want to have the option. If it doesn't work out, it's very easy to work back onsite. I truly believe remote work is the future. I have a feeling when I'm an old lady, is when it will be the norm.

  5. Set up your home near airport or a train station to the airport. Have one room exclusive as office. Work from home. Work m – f. Hop on the train on Friday afternoon. I've been doing that close to 10 years

  6. Don’t work on the beach with your butterfly keyboard, because a grain of sand might blow under a key cap.
    Then your code could contain double E’s.

    Ps… working from thee beeach

  7. I didn't see anything about X-Team offering visas but maybe the employer they find you will provide one. Depending where you work remotely that is a key consideration. Companies like IGLU in Thailand come with a work visa (I'm not associated with them in anyway.) In Thailand in particular you can possibly get away without having a visa but if you get caught the penalties are very severe. You can be fined and black listed from the country. If you want to be serious about being a digital nomad you have to allocate time and money to get the proper visas and have the experience be as low stress as possible. Also working remotely is not always the dream people think it is you have to be sure you like working solo and when needed can effectively communicate with remote tools.

  8. I've been working remotely for the past 2 years. I totally agree with everything you said, especially the need for a desk or steady work place. For the first 6 months or so I floated around in cafes around my city but found my productivity sky rocketed when I worked from a desk with a nice monitor and keyboard

  9. Hm I'm not too sure about the future of working remotely. It could go either way really. Yes traveling is way easier and more accessible than it used to be, but so are all resources in general. Every place is basically the same now except things like geography and weather – which of course do matter.

    You can leave your house easier than before but you can also NOT leave your house easier than before.
