This lonely group of talented tech nerds misses working in person with each other, so they produced an original song and music video to lament their collective work-from-home nightmare, "Until We're Together Again."
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Orlando-based tech company Conga made all its teams work remotely. They normally develop software suites alongside each other like the Conga Composer, a popular document generation and reporting product used with Salesforce.In the old days, some of the more musically gifted team members would host regular open-mic nights after hours, which were also halted when the shelter-in-place period began. That's when one group of "Conganeers" decided to get together anyway via GoToMeeting, with the account they use for work, and ended up writing and recording an original song.
Watch it above, or check it out on YouTube.We get to see the nature postershang on Nancy's wall,swear that Jim's apartment lookslike a bathroom stallSandy's kids will scream real loud,if given half a chance,and I don't want to wonderif Dave is wearing pants.
My brothers and my sisters are all right here with me,on a screen that's not much bigger than a very small TV.See their happy faces in little bitty frames,it helps me keep them close, but it's really not the same.
