This purpose of this group is to bring together a group of people with Asperger's/autism that provides mutual support in navigating the tech industry. We intend to open a new kind of self-directed educational center for programmers (https://autismsuccessintech.org/educational-center/) in Berkeley.
All aspects of technology are included: programming, data entry, data science, hardware, operating systems, office software, computer art and graphic design, industrial design, engineering, mathematics, science, electronics, startups, space exploration, testing, entrepreneurship, hackerspaces, and much more.
No previous experience with technology is required -- just a desire to learn and help others. Complete beginners are welcome. Those with experience can provide advice and support to the newcomers.
Can I sponsor your group? Yes, learn more about supporting us here (https://autismsuccessintech.org/support-us/). Any assistance with organization, meeting space, software, hardware, partnerships, job training, and/or other help would be greatly appreciated.
