🌏 Featured Resource of the Week

PM Tech Lessons by David Cai (APM2 @ Yahoo)

Technical Concepts for your Product Management Career

  • PM Tech Lessons is absolutely incredible. Check out the “Technical Explainers” section for blog posts on software engineering fundamentals, explained in an extremely accessible way. Learn everything from “What is an API” to “Principles of Abstraction” — David has you covered!

  • David also recently launched an Algorithms Interview Prep course

    1. What: The PMTL Algorithms Interview Prep course is an 8-part course featuring an in-depth explainer article for each topic, along with exercises and answers to complement.

    2. Who: It’s written for non-technical candidates (previous experience: roughly 1 or 2 CS classes, or an online coding course), and is designed to gently introduce fundamental algorithms topics in non-technical, non-math-y language.

    3. Why: For the intrepid reader, this course may be enough to fully prepare for interviews but for others, it will build an incredibly solid foundation that will jumpstart your progress into Leetcode or similar coding exercises.

    4. How: To purchase this course, please make a donation of any amount to one of these BLM organizations and send a copy of the receipt to

  • TL;DR: Learn the technical concepts you need to break into product management AND support Black Lives Matter, and the larger movement to end racial injustice. That’s what we call a win-win. ❤️

Here’s to finding your own path ✨
