ESEIW 2022
Sun 18 - Fri 23 September 2022 Helsinki, Finland
Thu 22 Sep 2022 09:15 - 10:30 at Bysa - Opening & Keynote Zimmermann Chair(s): Casper Lassenius


The COVID-19 pandemic shook the world to its core and provoked an overnight exodus of software developers who normally worked in an office setting to working from home. In this talk, I will present the results of several studies at Microsoft on how software developers and their teams have been affected by this change. I will discuss benefits and challenges of remote work and the impact of productivity during the pandemic. I will conclude with research opportunities and implications for the new hybrid work in software engineering as many developers are returning to work in offices.
