This past month has been the strongest hurricane month in the Atlantic Ocean that's ever been recorded. After we didn't think it could get any worse after Hurricane Harvey, it only continued with Hurricanes Irma and Maria, with Maria causing some of the biggest natural disaster damage in U.S. history. Many X-Teamers live in the Dominican Republic, and it's been an emotional time anxiously awaiting the hurricanes to pass and hoping for the best f [...]

Hello world! That seems to be the first line every young developer tries to do, but it has many other meanings for a remote developer. We meet people from all over the world — clients, colleagues, providers — and that gives us the opportunity to share thoughts, experiences, ways of thinking and more. For example, I am from Argentina, and I have the opportunity to work every day with people from Denmark, Uruguay, the U.S, Russia, Irela [...]

Motivation sucks... well... kind of. Motivation is an abstract idea of highly condensed energy that can quickly move you forward with your goals. However, you cannot rely on it forever. Motivation is like a nice, sunny Spring day, where everything seems perfect and good. However, pretty much like the weather, your brain, emotions, and life come into play and change it; and they change it more often than you care to realize. People saying you nee [...]

While the vacation season is in full, here are a few tips to fight back your back-to-work blues. Catch Ideas When you come back to your daily routine with a fresh perspective, you will start to notice that you have ideas on how to approach stuff differently. Maybe an idea on how to be more productive passes through your thoughts. Remember to capture those ideas in a neat to-do list. Take notes and use them to your advantage. Who knows, maybe you [...]

It may be a cliché, but are not clichés the oldest wisdom? “Traveling is the only thing you spend money on that makes you richer.” I am glad to be a member of a community that cultivates values of exploring various corners of the Earth. X-Team supports this by organizing the so called X-Outposts. I had the greatest pleasure of attending a few of those, but the X-Outpost: Thailand still remains the one that has had the biggest impact on me. ... I [...]

Wilcze Laski The vehicle of choice, a flatbed tow truck, awaited. The Anna-Maciej-Ben trio saddled up and left Poznan for the small town of Szczecinek. The road was long and full of terrors (of nightly driving), but we arrived in one piece. After spending the night, in the early morning, it was time to get ready to kick off the Outpost for real. The monstrous engine of Maciej's BMW Custom Drift Edition roared into life and slowly ascended the ram [...]

It is not about saying "I don’t have time." What is Unleash? It is a tool for everyone to grab and start working on yourself. It is a method to start achieving all those things you have always kept safe on your bucket list. It is a revolution. Working at X-Team as a Developer Unleasher taught me several things. However, most importantly it opened my eyes to a simple fact: You have a natural ability to find a million excuses in a fracture of a se [...]

I recently read the book Apprenticeship Patterns which advises programmers how to overcome the challenges that come with being and remaining self-taught and become better at what we do. Apprenticeship Patterns does not tell you how to write better code. What it does, is presents roadblocks you would encounter during your career with solutions to help you overcome them. An apprentice is someone that seeks to learn and get better at their craft. It [...]

Recently, a short post about the most depressive month of the year got viral among my friends. In this text, you can find arguments behind a particular statement and also a piece research. The author shares a few links (link1, link2, link3). Based on the five content, the conclusion is: January can be the most depressive month of the year because all of the proposed arguments seem to be true. And the weird thing is that most of my friends have ag [...]

Personal Development Hour Starting today, I want to you have an hour to yourself every week. Dedicate that time to your personal development. Whether it is reading a book, watching a video of a conference talk, or creating a "hello world" app in a ne [...]
