The cloud-native has a welcoming, diverse and inclusive community. However, are we as a community aware and inclusive of neurodivergent people? Are we neurodiverse? Is our documentation, talks, processes, conferences, applications, interactions and resources in line and aware of neurodivergent needs as it is for the neurotypical? How can we recognize and support our neurodivergent people? What efforts, approaches, and awareness programs are accomplished by the cncf or the community to accommodate and extend such inclusivity and strengthen our neurodiversity? What community data do we have on mental disorders among us, our developers, advocates, and the rest of the community? Join us, neurodivergent people answering the above questions and sharing our experiences, journeys, concerns, and insights reflecting on the CNCF community ecosystem and how it can benefit from being more neurodiverse. Presenting tips and tricks on how ADHD might be recognized as early as possible for you, a member of your family or the community? Our contribution is how to continue the self-care journey and extend inclusivity to mental health disorders, starting with ADHD. Hopefully, this will encourage more, including specialists and professionals, to come forward and help.
