I'm a Lead Developer at Scott Logic working in the London office. I'm a full-stack developer who is always keen on finding ways to help a team improve their coding quality and practices.

Working remotely all of the time has been an unusual and disorienting experience for everyone at Scott Logic. But what has it been like for the more junior consultants, being onboarded onto their first client projects while physically isolated from each other?

Remote working every day for months on end is a form of sensory deprivation. Our team working on the Scottish Government Payment Service is coming up with practical ways to address this and promote sustainable working. We want to share them here in case any are useful on your own projects.
