Linux developer sets own hours, but his days are grueling, nonstop

Filed under
Linux

Software developer Chris Wright works from home in Northeast Portland, and his boss is more than 2,500 miles away in Boston. But that doesn't mean Wright gets to take it easy.

His day typically starts at 9 a.m., when Wright, 34, boots up a computer in a converted upstairs bedroom and goes to work adding features to the Linux computer operating system. With e-mails and instant messages, he collaborates with fellow Linux developers all over the globe.

Work generally continues, with breaks for lunch and dinner, until 1 a.m. after Wright has had a chance to check in with colleagues who are just starting the day in England.

Full Story.
