Busting the Top 5 Myths About Remote Developers

The following is a guest article from our friends at Toptal.

Picture this…

You meet your friend Jeff for lunch. Jeff’s been managing development of a new product and it’s about to be released. He’s pumped.

But the product release isn’t the main thing that’s got Jeff so excited. Instead, Jeff can’t stop raving about his new hire, Luis.

5 Ways To Take Advantage Of Your Erasmus Scholarship

This article was originally published in Spanish on my own personal blog back on August 10th, 2013, as a way to tell my Erasmus experience studying and working abroad in Poland, and share some tips and recommendations for those college students who are interested in going abroad.

It has been over four years since I first published this article and I still get emails from time to time from students who are considering doing an Erasmus, asking for advice and recommendations.
