To be honest, not the first lockdown and not this we should face have not much effect on me...
If I can commute I do, otherwise working from home...

But! There are a few - or even more than a few - who lost their job (including my big brother, who was on unpaid leave for a few months)... As I understand this time there will be no restrictions on the workforce, except if the nature of the work implies crowd (like sport, theater, hotels, restaurants and such)...

At my office we keep distance in an average day, so not much changed there... Probably part of the colleges will work form home, to keep an eye on the kids, but as my wife works from home most of the time anyways, no problem there either...

The only problem that we are under extreme pressure to enable full online learning - including exams... A lot of work...

(because of the holiday season I have only 7 days of work left until the end of the 3 weeks lockdown planned)

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
