    Since this is an Intro class, it'll mostly be a mixture of lecture, Q&A, and open discussion to go over the broad spectrum of what a Product Manager does. The goal of tihs session will be to go over the surface level responsibilities and have an open conversation around any specific topics you'd like to dig deeper into. By the end of the session, you should have a good idea of which responsibilities you are more interested in learning more about in detail.

    If time permits, we'll go over a hands-on example at the end of the class for you to learn by doing. I'm a huge believer in project-based learning, so expect lots of converstions to pop up in the Classroom both before and after class.
