  • A Product Manager's Meetup Proposal

    I don't remember what set it off, but I've had a couple ideas recently around consumer product manager meetups. There are two main meetup ideas, and probably thousands of spin-offs from those two.

  • HackDay v0.9

    Hear Ye! Hear Ye! HackDay v0.9 hath officially concluded. If you don't know, PayScale HackDay is when the product team gets together, chugs coffee, eats donuts (or bagels (thanks Kayle)), and spends the day building whatever we want (as long as it has some relevance to PayScale). Sound interesting? Read on for all the details.

    We spent the end of 2012 figuring out some of the bigger picture things we wanted to get done in 2013... and we've wasted no time in getting started on them.

    To explain where we currently are, I'm going to use a little metaphor: When you go on a roadtrip, you have to pack the car before you hit the road. This is a large item on the to-do list and necessary for the rest of the trip to be successful. Your friends might call and ask, "How far have you made it bro?" and you may respond "I'm still in the garage." So even though you've made a ton of progress in preparing for your trip, someone on the outside may not see the work you've done. Sometimes software development is the same way -- we've made a lot of good progress, even though we're still in the garage.
