Eileen is an avid open source contributor focusing on the Ruby on Rails framework and its dependencies. If you are wondering what that means, don’t stress. We’ll break it down without overwhelming the non-techies among us. Eileen is passionate about scalability, performance, and making open source communities more sustainable and welcoming.
While Eileen lives and breathes tech, we covered much more than 1s and 0s in this episode. She describes how she gets into the flow state and her approach to organization. We also explored topics surrounding social media and not falling down the email inbox rabbit hole.
So, many people have been thrown into the role of working from home in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We also discussed some of the disadvantages and advantages of working remotely. Think of this episode as some mental spring cleaning for your soul. There's a lot of practical advice that you can apply to your work and life.
