Burnout is well defined in the literature as a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. In the tech industry, long hours, tight deadlines and a culture of being always connected can put a lot of pressure on people. All of this might easily lead to depression or burnout. While some companies do an effort to reduce the stress and offer a better work-life balance, it seems like there is still work to be done.

This talk aims at bringing down some of the stigmata around occupational burnout and show that some good can come out of it.
