Digital Nomad Resources
This is how we are taking full advantage of the 21st century economy: by working online and living a life that isn’t tied to just one location.
In this section, we write about the best spots we come across while working remotely in different cities around the world. Every now and then, we also like sharing thoughts about what it’s like to work on the go. But we’re not at all about glorifying the travel and digital nomad lifestyle – we take lots of pride in telling it like it is!

Any digital nomad will know the importance of three things: a good cup of coffee, a fast WiFi connection, and comfortable sofas (bums get sore after a few hours!). Earlier this year, we spent two months in Vietnam, eating, slurping and working our way around the country. Whenever we based … more »
I just came upon a really interesting piece by Alex Pszczolkowski. He thought he wanted to become a digital nomad, but really didn’t. Alex brought up some really interesting points about why ‘Digital Nomadry’ does not work for him. The crux of the matter pretty much boils down to: “Can’t … more »
So I’m a traveling programmer. I used to work 40 hours a week with 20 days paid leave. But last year I quit by job, grabbed my sweetheart and took off to see the world. I hear/read a lot these days about how programmers are treated unfairly, aren’t valued for … more »
