COVID-19 Resources

Things have changed quickly for us all during the current COVID-19 crisis. Businesses have had to make sacrifices to protect our communities: Things get put on hold, routines get sidelined, and priorities shift.

Right now, our top priority is helping you to respond quickly and strategically to this unprecedented shift to remote life—and to come out a more agile organization. Transitioning to a new working model can seed uncertainty amongst your teams and put a lot of stress on the business. We’re right there with you. Luckily, the working models that we’ve built to support our own distributed teams have helped us adapt to this “new normal” more quickly and preserve both continuity and connectedness. We’re committed to sharing our experience and leveraging these insights to help our community (that’s you).

Finding the “better way” is what we believe in: We wanted a better way to build software, and we found it. Embedded in those software development practices are methods for working better together, driving greater productivity, and keeping teams both connected and engaged. As we hone our own approach to this crisis, we’ll continue to share expertise, advice, and resources that we believe will be helpful to you. We’d love to hear about specific problems that we can help you solve in this time of crisis—so don’t hesitate to reach out with questions.

Stay connected and stay safe. We’ll all be stronger for it.
