Desk Setup Transformation Covid-19

2020 was a very very tough year for all of us. I lost my mom after years fighting with diabetic that lead to kidney failure. The global Covid-19 pandemic also put a heavy blow to the world society, economic and i think also politic.

It’s not done yet as today in 2021, but i hope it can be getting better and we’re getting smarter and wiser to make it happen.

Well, it’s not applied to everybody but for people who work in IT field like me, WFH is not a new thing.
