Work from home burnout? That’s like talking about how not to drown in a desert. I’ve been WFHing since 2010 an have experienced less burnout than any single day of onsite work.
Onsite means noise, interruptions, working with jerks, recurring meetings, methodology horseshit. Working from home means setting my own pace, listening to music on speakers, taking breaks to exercise or play with my cats, not being dragged into pointless meetings.
You have it backwards.
And by the way, referring to test-driven pair programmers as engineers is an insult to real engineers. Software development is further from engineering than economics is from science.
