Abstract

The difference between a programmer and a software engineer is their understanding of soft skills.

The problem many of us face is that as members of neurodiverse communities, we must find different ways to build these skills. 

In this session, Elizabeth will talk about the issues she has faced as an autistic individual in the industry. She also talks about ways that you can help others in the industry.
