    "Wow! Very helpful. If you don't have all the people you need for your project, try using this app. I was a bit skeptical but ended up willing to give it a try when I found myself in a pickle. And it worked! I was able to find a few extra designers who ended up being really good, and fun to work with. It's worth trying on a small project first, and get to know the platform better, but I suspect it can also work for bigger projects."

    "A fun product for sure, but a bit daunting to start with. It might be because there is actually so much in this app, or it might be that it could have been designed in a way that makes it more intuitive, but to me, it meant that I was a bit confused by the goal of the app and by how I could use it to really benefit from it. That being said, after about 10 minutes spent exploring the app and trying things, I realized it was actually pretty powerful and flexible. And for something that looks a bit hard to crack at first, it ended up being quite intuitive and fun to use, and most importantly, very useful in helping me define what was important, the aspects I should prioritize etc. Definitely worth trying and playing with."

    "This blog has helped me somewhat in improving my effectiveness as a product manager. The ideas are good and do help me to think in different ways about what I am trying to do. For addressing a specific need, I have to do additional research, but this blog has in some ways helped me to become better at my work."

    "Not exactly the kind of "resources" you may be looking for, but it's a community for product managers. The different points can give you an increasing potential source of resources. People are good resources for all kinds of things."

    "The website starts with an clickbait article titled : the struggle and why YOU should take this course. One week PM is a course designed to teach product managers the basics of their field. The article is litered with personal testimonies on how the course is good, but there is no formal rating from an audience. The class curriculum is all out there, however, and the website does a good job at explaining everything you need to know. A concept that is designed for teaching, that doesn't skimp on educating it's audience on what it is and how it operates, is a pretty good sign to a good course. One Week PM seems to be relatively good if you need an online option."

    "As a Product Manager, this resource will help me tremendously. To be able to take courses, to gain the skills I need to succeed, is incredible. The list of instructors come from a variety of prominent businesses, which excites me to be able to 'pick their brains' and maximize my own expertise."

    "This is a Udemy course, plain and simple, you get what you put into it out of it. If you take it seriously you will learn exactly what you need to know in a well managed manner but if you don't then you won't. But specifically to this course, it breaks down everything you need to know into managed chunks and with a big focus on why so you can actually use your skills in the ways you'll be expected to in the real world."

    "If you are a manager like me, you know how hard things can be, specially when you are just starting. "The Lean Product Playbook: How to Innovate with Minimum Viable Products and Rapid Customer Feedback" was my best friend and helped me through the hardest parts of learning about products, how to manage them and of course, how to help the costumer. I think every manager out there should own this"

    "For a book about forming habits, you'd think the cover wouldn't be so bland and gaudy, but it is. I was suckered in by the great reviews, but this book is without any substance. It's basically a hodge-podge of common sense suggestions and a bit of new age drivel dumped in. I struggled to stay awake, and that was just in the first chapter!"

    "I started using Product Hunt recently after a colleague mentioned it to me. Every day, I get a list of new products to check out based on my preferences. Some of them are not great, but I have some across a few that I have downloaded and have enjoyed them. I would recommend at least checking this out if you are a fellow product manager."

    "Want to learn the basics of product management? Do you like churros? If the answer to both of these questions is yes, then this is the seminar for you. What could be better than learning a new skill while eating a delicious snack? Nothing, is the answer."

    "As a product manager, Mind the Product is an invaluable resource for myself. The multitude of content allows me to hear and see a variety of topics that I can utilize in my career and company. The articles address my needs and curiosity and the authors/speakers are all very knowledgeable."

    "When my boss recommended that we use Magnet to keep things organized at work, I was pretty skeptical. However, this product has been the perfect solution to a crazy workplace. Magnet takes your screen and organizes it in tiles so that you can see what you're working on all at once instead of scrolling through different apps and moving in one at a time. This is a great productivity app, and I highly recommend it!"

    "Trillian looks like an awesome office tool for product managers. You can separate people working on a project and place them in separate groups. You can then start a group chat within specific groups. Trillian will also keep those chats for you and if you stop a chat you can get right back into it later and all the posts will still remain. You can use it on multiple devices so if you have your smartphone and not computer you still have access to it and can still contact the groups."
