I feel like I have no actual friends in my home office. I only go out after work with the team that I'm on. I'm in no groupchats or anything. Will this hurt me in the long run?

I’ve never been in a group chat and things worked out just fine for me

Network with the people that matter (I.e. people that can promote your career progression). There are too many happy hours to hit them all, and the best connections I have made are with the teams I work with the most.

Going out with your team is networking. A solid network grows over time, organically. One of your team members goes to industry, you go to a new team, meeting new people, and so on. Going to a conference and shaking as many hands as possible will get you nowhere. The quality of your work product will get your name in far more conversations, and you won't even have to be there to sell yourself.

You'll be okay

No. It would only hurt your if you don’t socialize with your actual teams

Group chats don't add any real value.

Nothing good going on in those group chats anyway

Meh it's whatever don't worry

Nah. Just make sure to leave a group impression on your senior/manager/partner.

Sorry. Answer is yes. N-E-T-W -O-R-K

Screen sharing with an ultrawide / 4K monitor - what’s everyone’s experience like? In the past I tried to screen share with a 1440p monitor and people would complain my screen was too small so I have a secondary 1080p monitor that use exclusively for screen sharing. I’d love to move to either an ultrawide or just upgrade the 1080p monitor to a 4K one but am worried I’ll have the same issues it appearing small on the other persons end. Anyone have any suggestions?
