The Covid-19 outbreak marked the beginning of my remote work career. Previously we only had weekly chats with our teams in Oslo and UK, but the interaction with the teams have changed significantly. It has been a challenge, I struggled a lot in the beginning to find a good routine and stay productive through out the day. My work-life and private-life blended into one, as I was working from my living room. However, I've now found a good rhythm and are actually prefer to work remotely.
I still don't work remotely, but lately I've been doing a lot of research on the subject. I am self-taught and intend to try to implement some type of remote work in the area of web development by the end of this year.

Was thrust into Remote work like all of us at the start of the Pandemic but now recently taken a remote-based role with a company in the Learning Management space. We also have some interesting tools developed for the Remote Worker. These are still in their infancy and I would value any/all chats to discuss our platform and your thoughts.
