Thank you for sharing your tips! I loved the part about Singletons most of all. Distributed corporate outing sounds like a challenge to organize to make all team members feel inclusive.
Stafford Sumner, Founder of one UK digital agency, shared his tips on managing distributed developers recently. To have fun and hang out with each other they have a weekly Quiz. It’s a game that is particularly popular in the UK in which participants try to answer general knowledge questions correctly. They also add topical questions about countries where their employees and clients live and work to broaden everyone’s understanding of each other.
I hope it will help someone.
