What we're about

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.

Please note: at the moment the meetups are scheduled (twice per week) through the Code Self Study calendar (https://www.meetup.com/codeselfstudy/).

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.

For more information, see the Autism Success in Tech website (https://autismsuccessintech.org/).
