Chico >> Michael Lopp, former head of engineering for Pinterest, will be in Chico talking to local entrepreneurs.
Sponsored by Chicostart, Lopp’s appearance will be from 4:30 to 6 p.m. May 10 at Manzanita Place, 1705 Manzanita Ave. He is now vice president of engineering at Slack. An executive dinner is planned early, and then a public program.
Lopp describes his presentation “The Engineer, the Designer and the Dictator: During the course of your career, it is likely you will have an undeniable urge to build a thing. It is equally likely that while you are well-intentioned, you are horrifically bad at a skill that is essential to successful thing building. We’re going to talk about the ‘next’ thing you’re going to work on and the team you’ll need — the engineer, the designer and the dictator.”
Space is limited. Tickets are $100 for dinner and program, or $20 for the program. Reservations are required: http://tinyurl.com/lun23np
