I truly agree about losing out on networking with colleagues. Headphones make most sense in open offices or co-working spaces like WeWork when you are trying to get stuff done and there's too much noise in the background. Otherwise, it's much better to not wear headphones and use other productivity hacks/tools like Pomodoro time-boxing etc. to get more done.
Pomodore is a great help. I tried it once but somehow forgot about it again.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
