The virtual workplace

whatsapp-image-2016-09-02-at-13-11-08-1When I started out as a freelancer, I had one big problem: the lack of any real office. I live in an apartment with a pretty big living room, but only two bedrooms, one being used for sleeping, the other for a drying rack and storage. While it is definitely possible to do work in the living room, I have to put extra effort into keeping focus, especially when doing paperwork. So most of the time, I end up either working at the client or at a flex space.

Still, having an office of my own for a company was still something that lingered in my mind. I still have a vision in my head on how I want it to look: Just a nice, open room with my desk in the center. A bookcase on the side with some programming books and potentially comics. In a corner, I’d like to have a table filled with tons of little gadgets to tinker with. Space will be reserved for the HTC Vive. And a 3D printed version of my logo somewhere on the wall. I still have to wait until I’m getting a new apartment or house, but I definitely already have the whole thing in my head.

Eventually, my ideas about this subject has led to one of my favorite pet projects: The Virtual Office.
