The Product Summit: Mastering The Future of Product Excellence. The Ultimate Conference For
Product Professionals; Designers, Developers, Managers And Marketers to be Held At General

PRLog - Oct. 28, 2014 - SAN FRANCISCO -- The Product Summit brings together product visionaries,
leaders and practitioners to share first-hand experience for achieving product excellence, from creation to
release and beyond. The uniquely structured conference goes beyond merely talking about best practices
and enables demonstration of mastery throughout the 4 day process that starts with listening to lightning
talks by experts, learning from practitioners, then requires active team collaboration to develop an
innovative solution, and individual participation to present during the unconference Product Camp format.
"Developers, designers, managers and marketers rarely have time to discuss and debate what the
product requires outside of their siloed departments and companies. The Product Summit provides the
rare opportunity for all product professionals to come together to discover the best methodologies and
approaches to managing the product throughout its lifecycle from inception, through development, launch,
scaling and beyond,” says Cindy F. Solomon, Producer, The Product Summit, Founder, Startup Product
Academy, and host of the Global Product Management Talk.
"We're excited to be a long-term partner with the movement for product excellence and host The Product
Summit. General Assembly recognizes the intrinsic value of The Product Summit for our current students
and alumni of our product management, User Experience, programming and management offerings to
further product community, professionalism and networking opportunities,"states Edward Farraye, Global
Business Development Producer, General Assembly.
