LLMs won't take your product management job (at least not yet)

Greetings all,

In this week’s episode of Ventures,  I (https://www.reddit.com/user/wclittle) walk through - as a screencast - the concept of creating an “Overview Story” for your digital product and I also dive into creating a simple “Hello World” with Ruby on Rails. In this “Product and Code” series this year - in each episode - I’ll be introducing a simple product thing and code thing and then pointing people to our curriculum doc (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mRGdU5JCOl96ywR6sSvAiae7W8sDxFhkih5mdqrGitM/edit# ) for further reading and study. Join us within BanyanDAO’s Discord server to follow along: https://discord.gg/95JRuPaTP8.

LLMs and Product People

Large Language Models (LLMs) like ChatGPT are absolutely incredible. I find myself using ChatGPT a lot more than Google search these days, and I’m excited about what LLMs can do for our “text-to-x” future.

Will Prompt Engineers be able to create and deploy entire web/mobile products from a series of commands to our AI overlords? I think the answer will clearly be “yes”; it’s just a matter of time.

Still, the new product managers will be prompt engineers (or vice versa). Product people will sit at their computers all day and tell LLMs how to create their things rather than software engineers.

However, I believe the best product people will be those who understand “old school” code - hence I think it’s still valuable to learn it.

To that end, if you haven’t dove into the curriculum doc and/or joined us on BanyanDAO’s Discord server yet, please feel free to do so.

Have a great rest of your week!
