description

The workplace of the future is going to be less centralized, more mobile, and more flexible than ever before. Work no longer revolves around the job and people are not tethered to a single location. More often than not, people are much more productive and happier when working from home. The trend's going to be accelerated by rapid uptake of mobile technology, economic volatility, and the intensifying war for top Drupal talent. Centered on the idea of working remotely, more businesses are adopting the distributed model as a practical way to attract and retain top talent in Drupal. In this session you will learn first hand from someone who has both worked as a remote employee / contractor and now runs her own distributed Drupal Agency. Even though most of the Kanopi team is located in the Bay Area, they choose a distributed model. Come learn why this is favorable, fun and profitable.
