8 Tech Lessons from Tiger King

If you look really hard, you can find some valuable lessons about technology buried in Netflix’s insane true crime docuseries.

By now you’ve all seen Netflix’s Tiger King – the docuseries about the rescue and preservation of tigers and other big cats that quickly devolves into a Russian nesting doll of increasingly bizarre, outlandish, and outright disgusting scandals and behavior.

You might not think the show has anything to offer engineers and developers, but if you look beyond the cults, rampant drug use, and general disregard for personal safety around dangerous wildlife, there are some valuable lessons embedded deep within the show. Granted, these lessons are deeper than Carole Baskin allegedly buried her husband.

Here are 8 lessons about tech that can be learned from Tiger King.
