The world is changing and so is the way we work as we become increasingly distributed. We can’t apply old processes to new environments. Much like having to work from home has forced a change in how we work together as teams, successfully managing services in increasingly decentralized architectures demands a different way of thinking. Join Melissa van der Hecht, Product Manager at Kong, to look at the surprising similarities between our own work processes and our services as we adapt to new routines in distributed locations.
