Hey everyone! I'm an engineer-turned-PM, relatively new to PMing in the platform space. Wondering if you all have any other conferences or events you might recommend that would be particularly applicable to product management?

Have you read https://basecamp.com/shapeup yet?

Bits and pieces, but never in its entirety! Will bump it back to the top of the list 🙂

I know it's not directly answering the question, but I had to pick up a lot of PM duties and it helped a lot. The other thing that made a big difference was practicing building roadmaps. Do you have an internal tool for visual roadmapping? Or are they making you use JIRA?

Hah, we're using Jira 😂 For reference, I've been in a product role for the last two years (after 6 as an engineer), but to-date have been working on a data product. Our company is in the early stages of defining what it would mean to have a true platform engineering organization, and I'm leaning in on the product side.
