All professionals deal with challenging, high-stress and/or high-pressure situations. Everyone has their limits, and too much stress or pressure can lead to “burnout,” a state of physical and emotional exhaustion. Burnout takes its toll not only on the individual but also co-workers, team, friends, and family. By working together, individuals and managers can avoid burnout.
This session explores the dangers of burnout and the negative impact it has on teams and individuals. We will review the three main types of burnout: Frenetic, Under-Challenged, and Worn-Out. Attendees will walk away with the ability to identify, treat, and prevent burnout in themselves and others.

I have been working with Drupal since 2008. I have done everything from theming, module development, to full on project architecture. I am active in the Drupal community and I submit modules, patches, organize sprints, speak at conferences/camps and help run the Boston Drupal meetup. I am an "Acquia Grand Master" and in 2014 was named an Acquia MVP for the Drupal work I had done.
I am the host of the podcast Developing Up, where we talk about the non-technical side of being a developer (such as how to work on a team).
In my free time I enjoy experimenting with other technologies and techniques such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Python. When not working on the web I enjoy camping, kayaking, rock climbing, playing guitar/banjo, cooking and I am a big fan of Doctor Who.
