Candid Conversations & Code: Coding Through Barriers
July 19, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Supporting Special Abilities & Needs Programmers
With today’s ever-changing technology-reliant world, join us for an all hands on deck “Think Aloud” conversation about dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder and ADHD. We will address common misconceptions associated with these exceptionalities and the strengths that steer them. Next, we’ll explore how special or vulnerable populations, including those with disabilities, may stand to gain the most from the estimated 5.5 million STEM job openings by 2022. Finally, learn how you can be empowered to create tech hacks that meet you where you are.
