Join us as JD and Avi take you through a split session for mind and body.
JD will be telling his story of dealing with mental illness as a developer and how they affected his career, productivity, and professional connections. He will also be talking about dealing with working remotely as someone with mental illness and some methods he uses to keep from becoming too isolated and distant from his team.
Avi will be sharing some advice on staying active while working remotely. When he began full-time remote work last year, Avi made a commitment to a go to the gym, mostly as a way to make sure he got out of the house at least a few times a week during the Chicago winter. After over a year of work with a trainer and 3+ years at a standing desk, he'll share some tips on how to stay active and moving when we're deskbound for 40+ hours a week.
