Abstract

Our experience working with hundreds of customers who use Mattermost, an open source messaging workspace, and a distributed team of 50 with hundreds of additional contributors all working remotely, has taught us several lessons about communications tools and how to get work done across time zones. I’ll share several examples of good and suboptimal communication working with remote teams. I’ll also discuss the infrastructure and tools we found help us and our users become more effective teams and provide clarity in our work.
