Grow your employer in a coronavirus, or how to make sure that you're not fired in crisis

Day 5 /  / Track 1  /  EN /

It's not easy to work remotely: not having the opportunity to discuss current issues with colleagues over the cup of coffee while drawing JSON on napkins, not seeing people's reactions, discussing the important issues, being distracted during important meetings on home problems, and if you also have children...

However working remotely during the panic, financial crisis, and without any reliable forecast is ten times harder. And to remain without work at times when companies are cutting budgets, closing vacancies, and firing the crowds of programmers, filling the market with additional competitors, is very scary. To order to minimize risks and not get on unpaid vacation, you need to find out what your bosses think and feel what they feel. Put yourself in their place.

We have collected the most valuable tips and wrote a series of successful and unsuccessful scenarios between the boss and the employee who hasn't been fired yet so that these tips can be shown to you in the new show "While everyone's home". While everyone's home — get into the head of your boss!

Baruch Sadogursky (a.k.a JBaruch) is the Head of DevOps Advocacy and a Developer Advocate at JFrog. His passion is speaking about technology. Well, speaking in general, but doing it about technology makes him look smart, and 19 years of hi-tech experience sure helps. When he’s not on stage (or on a plane to get there), he learns about technology, people and how they work, or more precisely, don’t work together.

He is a co-author of the Liquid Software book, a CNCF ambassador and a passionate conference speaker on DevOps, DevSecOps, digital transformation, containers and cloud-native, artifact management and other topics, and is a regular at the industry’s most prestigious events including DockerCon, Devoxx, DevOps Days, OSCON, Qcon, JavaOne and many others.
