When it comes down for it, the person who gets the gig is the person who can hang.

Nobody hires you because you’re the best musician. Larry “mutherf*ckin” Legend learned that from his past life as a jazz musician and recording engineer. When the music industry began to go down the tubes, he got in touch with his “computer nerd roots” and became a developer, building iPhone and iPad apps under the moniker House of Legend.

Larry was one of our three “The Audience Takes the Stage” speakers in December of 2011. He shares key insights learned in his past life as a musician on working and interacting with people, and how those lessons shaped his current success as a developer.
