I'm a huge fan of Coffee Chats, they are an important part of the culture when a company is all remote. I have a personal target of 1 Coffee Chat a week with someone not who is not on my direct team.
Please don't hesitate to schedule one with me!
These are books that have made an impact on me along with a great book on baking bread =)
