How to Evaluate Your Technical Career Track

It's often unclear what tracks are available to people in technical careers such as designers, engineers, and product managers within any size organization. The path chosen by many is the management track, but what if you want to stay technical? Are there alternatives? 

In this forum, you'll learn:

• What to think about when you're evaluating the choice between pursuing a management vs a technical track 

• The opportunities that are available to you if you choose to go down a technical track, what the day-to-day will be like, and how to prepare for this path

    Is this beginning at 6pm PST or 3pm PST? My calendar invite says 3pm but this obviously says 6pm. Just checking...

      It's definitely 6pm PST. iCal + Meetup have a bug. I'm looking into it, but need a little bit of time (pun intended) to figure it out :) If anyone else has figured it out please LMK! See you soon :)
