Dev and product - or on enjoying coding whilst creating value
There are many reasons why developers might be annoyed with their product managers: random deadlines, requirements that are too vague, or too specific, no time for technical debt issues, no big picture, no strategy, no plan, no skills... and the list goes on. As a product manager and user researcher, I wanted to know more and fix this. So last year, I collected insights about what makes developers unhappy about their fellow product folks. In my time as a Product Manager, I've worked with different teams, in different setups, on different projects. I'd like to share my experience with developers, and give them some tips on what they can do to improve their relationship with their PM and eventually be happier in their job.
