I’ve been a proponent of remote work, new ways of work and different approaches to work culture and the opportunities and options those provide for a long time.
While 2019 arguably was the year when remote work finally caught on for more than just a select few, 2020 most definitely was the year when remote work really took off – for obvious reasons.
I’d like to quickly share some of the tools and components from my current setup, in terms of both specific hardware and software that allows me to more readily and more productively meet and collaborate with others in virtual environments:
- Zoom and Google Meet (as part of Google Workspace): My main video conferencing tools
- Meeter: This simple tool lists all upcoming virtual meetings in tools such as Zoom or Google Meet including a link for quickly opening each meeting in the correct app.
- Clocker: This world clock app is a boon when working with people from different timezones
- Zappy: Free Screenshot & Recording Software for macOS | Zapier: Zappy allows me to quickly record, annotate, and share screenshots and videos from my local machine.
