Topic: Product and Code Series
Product: Magic Link for Web2 & Web3 Product Managers. Code: GitHub Copilot
In this episode of Ventures, I (https://twitter.com/wclittle) introduce for Web2 & Web3 product managers the company https://magic.link and why you should consider using their products to onboard customers in Web2&3. I also introduce GitHub Copilot (https://github.com/features/copilot) as a must-use tool when both learning to code and writing code professionally.
Product: Text to UI Designs w/ Galileo AI, Code: An introduction to CSS
In this episode of Ventures, I introduce https://www.usegalileo.ai/ as a hint of what is coming on the “text to UI design” front (within Generative AI), which will be a game-changer for product designers. On the code front - as we continue our Web2&3 Product & Code Series (https://satchel.works/@wclittle/product-and-code-series) - I introduce CSS and how to begin learning how to style your own HTML.
Product: How to train your own LLM with OpenAI. Code: Adding HTML elements to your welcome view
In this episode of Ventures, I (https://www.linkedin.com/in/wclittle) walk through a screencast of how to begin learning how to train your own LLMs (like ChatGPT) to be applicable for your own products and customers. On the coding side of things, I also walk through how to begin adding HTML elements to your welcome page in the Rails app that we spun up together in previous episodes of this series (follow along here: https://satchel.works/@wclittle/product-and-code-series).
Product: Learning from Lens Protocol and Farcaster. Code: Models and Migrations
In this episode of Ventures, I (https://www.linkedin.com/in/wclittle) continue our Product and Code series to talk about Web3 protocol design and Ruby on Rails model/migration construction. I bring up the protocols Farcaster and Lens as examples for product managers to be aware of and learn from when approaching how to build value for the modern web. I also detail how to create a User model in Ruby on Rails, its associated “migration” file, and examples from the Rails Console how to create a user to store in the database.
Product: How to use public blockchains and NFTs. Code: How to instantiate a controller variable
In this episode of Ventures, I (https://www.linkedin.com/in/wclittle) continue my Product and Code series to discuss first - on the product side - why and how blockchains can be used to create digital products. I also show - on the code side - how to instantiate a variable in a Ruby on Rails controller to display it in an associated view file. In the product section I discuss Yuga Labs’ https://mdvmm.xyz/ and explain why you - as a Web3 product manager - should be following Yuga’s strategies carefully to learn how to apply similar principles for your own products.
Product and Code Series: Gathering early product feedback, and understanding the application.html.erb file
Product and Code Series: Creating an Overview Story and a “Hello World” with Ruby on Rails
In this 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.
