In a community as large as ours, there are a lot of different types of workers. There are those who go into the office everyday, there are those with long commutes, and there are those who work remotely. Regardless of your workspace, if you are an OpenStack contributor, you are also a remote worker.
Being a remote worker can be an intensely lonely experience if you aren’t connected with the people you work with. Oftentimes, you work more closely with people who do not work for the same company that you do. With the increase of remote workers, community health and these relationships are even more important to the community at large.
