Slides John Masterson recently used in his discussion w/ mentees of The Product Mentor.

Synopsis: Drawing on my own experience as a naive Product Manager, the goal of this talk to increase awareness into the world of front-end JavaScript components. Specifically how to research these at the start of a project to avoid going into production with the wrong ones.

The Product Mentor is a program designed to pair Product Mentors and Mentees from around the World, across all industries, from start-up to enterprise, guided by the fundamental goals…Better Decisions. Better Products. Better Product People.

Throughout the program, each mentor leads a conversation in an area of their expertise that is live streamed and available to both mentee and the broader product community.
