The Myth of the Genius Programmer

Google I/O 2009 - The Myth of the Genius Programmer Brian Fitzpatrick, Ben Collins-Sussman A pervasive elitism hovers in the background of collaborative software development: everyone secretly wants to be seen as a genius. In this talk, we discuss how to avoid this trap and gracefully exchange personal ego for personal growth and super-charged collaboration. We'll also examine how software tools affect social behaviors, and how to successfully manage the growth of new ideas. For presentation slides and all I/O sessions, please go to:
