Neuro-diversity & software development: Why tech needs all kinds of minds & how we can support them

Time: 14:30 - 15:30
Talk: Mi 6.3


Even if you are unaware of it, it’s likely that there is someone on your team with a non-typical neurology. It even seems there is a higher propensity towards autism and aspergers in STEM careers. Turns out that is a good thing.
We will begin by looking at the research on diversity and success.
We will then consider different types of neuro-diversity - in particular the autistic / aspergers mind, with a particular view towards how that lends itself to developing software and how we might better support autists at work.
