A few weeks ago at InfoQ’s Qcon in London, Dr. Sallyanne Freudenberg gave a presentation on Neuro-diversity and Agile. I had the chance to interview Sal about her presentation, her experiences and her ideas on how to cope with some of the challenges knowledge workers face in work environments that strive for team-based work and high levels of collaboration. During the interview she talks about some of the techniques used by developers when working with complex problems, and how the things she learned studying autism has impacted the work that she does coaching Agile teams.
