Hope your quarantine continues to go smoothly! We live in some strange times. It was great hearing your thoughts on remote work. As another introvert and someone who already likes working from home, I feel like the transition has been a straightforward one. Mostly nothing new there for me. However, I did start teaching online for the first time via Zoom and it’s been a similar experience. I find that the sessions are more directed and focused than they would be otherwise. Less distractions, perhaps, as you said. I hope these are lessons and observations we can take with us even after business eventually gets “back to normal”. :)

Indeed. I hope that those experiences lead us to a better dynamic in meetings and our relationships at work as a whole. A developer needs some time alone thinking about code and sometimes this is impossible at the office. Although people are much closer, it is sometimes better to send a message instead of interrupting the developer in his thought, you will not get your answer right away, but it is something you will get used to it, while interruptions in thought can lead to loss of good ideas that may not return. The society has too much noise right now, even in the work, you certainly can learn something from this experience that can make us better. :)
