The Struggle: Why YOU Should Take This Course?

Early in your career, you can end up wasting months trying to learn more technical skills to break into a technical product role. Despite all of your hard work, you’ll always feel lost because:

  • You lack a formal background in computer science or software engineering.
  • The courses and bootcamps offered in the tech industry are either too technical and jargon-filled or lacked sufficient depth.
  • You’re not sure whether learning how to code and building a career in software engineering is right for you. Instead, you love the cross-functional skills that came with technical product management.
  • You don’t have insider tips nor the right technical resources on how to stand out as a candidate in tech PM interviews

To become more technical, we went down the rabbithole to understand what it takes to build successful tech products from the inside out. We interviewed thought-leaders within the industry. We learned the behaviors and habits of successful technical product managers. Empowered with this knowledge, we created the Technical Product Manager course so that no one else had to go through the painful experience that so many go through to become more technical and land their first product manager role.

What are you going to get from this course?

Over 140+ lectures, 15+ hours of content, 5+ downloadable Tech PM templates, and exclusive interviews (more added over time) with technical product managers in the industry.

  • Apply fundamentals learned from this course to your own TPM project every day.
  • Access to downloadable templates used by actual Tech Product Managers on the job.
