VM Brasseur will give a talk at YAPC::NA_2012 described as:
     Hiring remote workers is great for filling those holes on the
     team&but if you dont have the correct infrastructure in place youre
     just setting yourselfand your remote team membersup for a world of
     hurt. This session will detail how our engineering department went
     remote and thrived because of it.
     A lot of engineering teams are considering going remote now. And why
     not? There are excellent people everywhere. Why limit yourself only
     to those who can come into the office?
     Because you may not be able to support those remote workers, that’s
     There’s a lot more to having a remote team than just hiring someone
     then flying him/her in to visit the mother ship a couple times a
     year. Without the correct infrastructure and processes in place,
     remote hiring will turn into an exercise in frustration for you (at
     the home office) and set the remote worker up for failure.
     During this session we’ll discuss some of the preparations you
     should make before bringing remote staff on board. This will include:
     * Communication channels
     * Development methodologies and processes
