Boundaries are a conceptual framework that's useful for protecting your mental health in stressful situations. This talk will explore the concept, why it's useful in the technology industry, and how to implement it in your own life. It will also give examples of stressful situations that could lead to burnout and how to address those stressful situations using boundaries as a mental guide.
