hello world!

Welcome to Way Off Site! The podcast where we try to demystify remote work by sharing the experiences of developers who work way off site.

Our first episode will be dropping any day now, so please follow us on twitter at @wayoffsite for updates.

For a little behind the scenes, I’m T.J. Barbour, and I’m a typical developer who has to suffer a daily commute and standing guard at my cubicle. In my quest to “go remote” I realized there’s a lot to take in. One day at a developer meetup, I was pitched the idea to podcast about remote development. So, I hope we can learn about this together as I interview developers who have experience working remotely. This website was built using Hugo and we record our podcasts on Zencastr.

If you have feedback, would like to be a guest or just want to get in touch, you can email us at wayoffsite@gmail.com.

Big Thanks to some of the people who have inspired me to do this
- Scott Hanselman of Hanselminutes
- Rob Conery of This Developer’s Life
- Jeff Atwood of Discourse
- Joel Spolsky of StackOverflow
- Jeff Mayerson of Software Engineering Daily

And last but not least John Sonmez of Simple Programmer for pitching me the original idea.

Thank YOU for checking us out!

Your Host, T.J. Barbour
