    Burnout is a state of physical and mental exhaustion that results from excessive stress and constant overwork. It can result in reduced output, cynical or bleak outlook on projects and feeling helpless, hopeless and with no way out. Burnout is also a widespread but rarely spoken-about issue in tech.

    In this frank talk I will discuss my own experience with burnout. What happened, how I recognized the symptoms and was ultimately able to recover. I will also discuss things that employers and mangers can do to identify potential burnout in their employees and ultimately create a workplace that is safe for their employees’ mental health.
