Average rating: *....
(1.90, 10 ratings)

Decades of Hollywood super villains have learned their lessons the
hard way. You don’t have to. What can we learn about doing good,
from thwarted forces of doom? The Evil Overlord’s List has unexpected
wisdom to impart to developers who want to move up to the next level as a developer or founder.

It’s been said that coders “stand on the shoulders of giants.” We’ll
take a session to stand on the shoulders of tyrants, get a view from
their side, and make some discoveries about how to lead with the humor, grace,
and wisdom that perpetually evades those gals and guys.
