Hello everyone, I hope you’ve been keeping well and healthy. This is the third and final part of my series on Autistic coding on stage.

Autistic at times of Covid-19 – Sunday 9th August 2020: Autistic at Work #1

Edit: 9th August 2020 I was notified by a friend that I misused the term neurodiverse to refer to people who are autistic, dyslexic, dyspraxic, have add/ADHD and associated conditions and identities.
