Peter Yang

I've led products and teams at Roblox, Amazon (Twitch), Reddit, and Meta for 10+ years. I'm the author of Principles of Product Management and a newsletter read by 60,000 people. I've also ran PM training sessions for hundreds of new and aspiring PMs.

Despite the above, it was a struggle for me and many others to transition to PM and get started.

But you don't have to struggle alone.

This is the course I wish I had when I was starting my product management career.
