    Unfortunately remote development often relies on just being handed a specced out feature and then handing back code, it doesn't allow for the day-to-day even hour-to-hour iteration we have in our product development. Our developers and designers work hand-in-hand across the table from each other allowing for much more dynamic and fast-paced development.

    If someone suggests something, I can mock it up and write the HTML/SCSS myself within an hour to prototype it while continually discussing it with the team. This doesn't seem as feasible with a remote dev.

      i humbly disagree. Working in the same timezone, on Slack + Screensharing does the same thing. But yes, face to face cognitive transmissions do have some additional value. Not worth the extra $ in most cases.
