MindTheProduct is building an international product community. Started in 2010 with the very first ProductTank meetup in London and followed by ProductCamp London it has now grown to consist of 2,000+ members and sold out events in 11 different cities around the world – as well as hosting the first dedicated annual product management conference in 2012 and 2013.
“One of the best ways to learn about Product Management from peers, and for product managers and marketers to socialise with like-minded people.”
With this site we want to continue the great discussions we start at those events, and grow and nurture the product management community around the world!
We curate the best of the web, write up our events, share our experiences, and ask you to tell us about yours. Whether you have your own blog and want to cross-post here, have been looking for the right place to talk about your favourite product management topic, or merely want to comment on others’ – we want you to get involved right here.
Got some war stories, or product topics you want to share with the community? We’re always delighted to work with guest authors. Have a look at our Guest Post Guidelines.
