Scrum with Remote Workers - My Experience

About a year ago, our operations team took a cue from our developers and moved to a Scrum framework to manage infrastructure and monitoring projects.  If you are unfamiliar with Scrum, it is a set of processes usually used in software development that takes an iterative approach to building a product. The team works from a "backlog" of features, or User Stories, and each iteration in Scrum is referred to as a Sprint.

It turns out that this agile, iterative process works quite well in the operations world too; however, there were some difficulties for me personally - being the only remote member of my team.
