Interview with Dr J Harrison at Codemotion Berlin 2019
About
During the Codemotion Rome 2018 conference, Dr J Harrison presented the talk "The fine art of not fitting in: Being Genderqueer in a corporate world". We asked Dr J these questions: Based on your own experience, what is the current situation with diversity within the field of software development? Are companies aware of diversity issues, or do you think they are still underestimating them? What do you think the most challenging aspects of working in a diverse working environment are? What strategies have you used to respond to diversity challenges? What is the most common mistake, in a software development company, when thinking about diversity? Do you have any stories about diversity which relate to you?
