Event description
Product to Product is an event for/by product people, bringing you candid conversations about product.

About this Event

We've recently debuted the fifth season of our podcast and we're tackling the topic of growing pains (more users, more problems...y'know?). But what happens once the product/product team has scaled?

At this event, we'll be talking to some product leaders to learn about the different pain points of a product/product team at scale. We'll cover different team structures, communication processes, roadmapping best practices, tooling to manage all the user feedback you're getting — just to name a few things.

Come for the free food, stay for the engaging discussion.
