Product Thinking - Panel Discussion


The Importance of Technical Skills in UX and Product



Attention Product Thinkers! Time to get technical.

Understanding technology takes time, and learning how to design digital systems takes even longer. To understand the technology space and how software and hardware systems work together requires a level of dedication that's usually found in people with backgrounds in computer science and engineering.

Let's get together to talk about the importance of technical skills and how it makes a huge difference in how you approach the design, development, deployment, and management of technology.
