Autism/Asperger’s in tech: resources?

Lyft impromptu
May 9 5 Comments

I have diagnosed ASD. Managed to make it work since my teens through sheer effort, luck and by compensating heavily with intellect/memorizing “rules” where others have built-in social intuition. However it feels like it’s really coming in the way as my job becomes more and more about people.

I keep hearing how “half of Silicon Valley has autism,” are there any resources/Facebook groups/Slack channels, etc. for people with the condition?

All I can find online are resources for parents of autistic children. Would love to find a community for high-functioning autistic/Asperger’s people in tech.
