“Distributed” ER#4 now available!

Book Cover for DistributedTo start off the new year on a good note, “Distributed” Early Release #4 is now publicly available.

Early Release #4 (ER#4) adds five (yes, five!) new chapters:
* Ch.3 disaster planning
* Ch.5 physical setup
* Ch.6 video etiquette
* Ch.19 career path (around choosing the right employers)
* Ch.20 feed your soul (around mental sanity for long term “remoties”)
…as well as many tweaks/fixes to pre-existing Chapters.

You can buy ER#4 by clicking here, or clicking on the thumbnail of the book cover. ER#4 comes just over one month after ER#3. Anyone who already has ER#1, ER#2 or ER#3 should get prompted with a free update to ER#4 – if you don’t please let me know! And yes, you’ll get updated when ER#5 comes out at the end of the month.

As always, please let me know what you think of the book so far. Is there anything you found worked for you, as a “remotie” or person in a distributed team, which you wish you knew when you were starting? If you knew someone about to setup a distributed team, what would you like them to know before they started?

Thank you to everyone who’s already sent me feedback/opinions/corrections – I track all of them and review/edit/merge as fast as I can. To make sure that any feedback doesn’t get lost or caught in spam filters, please email comments to feedback at oduinn dot com.
