I’ve been working at my first tech job as a junior software dev for almost 5 months now and my job just allowed all developers to work remote. I was nervous at first because I’m still not 100% confident in myself, but it’s actually been going well so far and I’m excited about it! 😊

hows working as a junior dev like? especially fully remote. do you feel like you might be reaping 'gains' slower vs if you were to be in a physical office with the rest of the team members? 'gains' in terms of learning and experience-wise as a dev.

i like remote. but i hate it when i ping ppl on slack and they're non-responsive unless i repeatedly send them messages, lol.

I really love it. One of the best perks is being able to work in a silent, controlled space whereas our office space isn’t consistently quiet. We’re not fully remote, we have to be in office two days out of the week, and we all have to be in on Fridays to have a dev discuss. As for communication, our team of developers is really small, so we all stay in contact because there’s not many of us.

2 days seems like a good balance =)
