I am currently working remotely. We had a bit of a panic, the state of New Jersey was going on lock-down at the same time as my local office was moving locations. So we were forced to work remotely.
My daily tasks are a bit different in nature but not scope. I have daily "Stand-up" meeting with the Application team and we live on Skype. But most of my team is remote anyway in several states and countries.
What is difficult is that I don't have access to some of my big devices such as my electronic white boards. This makes it harder to share conceptual ideas. I also am lacking a lot of my handbooks. I'm old so I still like thumbing though a book rather than searching on-line.
I do miss the quick in person meetings. A one-off comment can help solve a problem and that is lacking now. I also miss the idle chit-chat which helps with my sanity.
During the first week or so I was very productive, now I find that my productivity is slowing down. Also sense a turn-down in business as my clients are also struggling to work remotely.
Stay safe out there. Let's all get through this!
