#182 Don't Sleep on your Product Launch: Learnings from my first Kickstarter

Description: In this talk I'll cover how creating a card game for Kickstarter taught me about everything I was doing wrong when it comes to launching a new product or feature. If you're like me, the bulk of your time as a product manager is spent nailing down desired outcomes with stakeholders, doing customer discovery, iterating with design, working with engineering and managing scope. By the time the product is finished, you're just ready to get it out the door. But there is a big difference between taking a product live, and actually launching it, and I believe understanding that is critical to your product's success. Bio: Hi! I'm Jesse and I've spent the last 10 years building and leading product teams for seed stage startups, the most recent of which (Nav) just closed a $44M C round. My background is in design and illustration and I just accomplished a long-time dream to create a card game from scratch and successfully fund it on Kickstarter. I'm currently a product manager at Weave working with the mobile app team to improve the relationships between dentists/optometrists and their patients. Food and Beverage: Lunch will be provided Sponsor: Weave Location: Weave 2000 W. Ashton Blvd, Suite 100, Lehi, Utah 84043

#183 Q&A: The How, Why & Importance of Work/Life Balance

DevMountain | Lehi

Come with your questions and together we can have a thought-provoking conversation as we build awareness around this important topic in our product community. In this Q&A panel, Eric Merritt (Senior UX Designer at Omadi) will moderate an engaging and collaborative discussion on the how, why and importance of work/life balance. We'll explore questions like: How much effort does your employer put into work/life balance and what about it resonates with you? How can we help create a workplace where this is valued? Is it all about the unlimited PTO? What about maternity/paternity leave? How do we avoid burnout and stress? Is it about outcomes or output? BIOS: MODERATOR, ERIC MERRITT: Eric is a designpreneur with six kids, five personal projects, four hours of sleep, three pairs of good jeans, two side businesses and one blind dog. After 20 years in the 3D graphics market, he discovered his love for user-centric design. Eric currently works as a Senior UX designer at Omadi in Lehi. PANELIST, TREVOR DOW: Trevor holds a Bachelors of Science Degree in Digital Media with an emphasis in Internet Technologies. He finished his undergraduate studies in just three years and started his career as a front-end web developer. Finding he had a natural eye for digital design, a strategic mind for crafting intuitive user experiences, and an ability to program his concepts, he quickly gained numerous opportunities to contribute to the success of industry-leading business. He has designed, developed, and led digital teams for major universities, Fortune 500 medical device manufactures, leading E-commerce websites and worldwide audiences that span multiple cultures and languages. His digital work has been experienced by millions, ranked in the top ten best-performing E-commerce websites, and received raving five-star customer reviews on the Google and Apple iTunes store. PANELIST, RAQUEL EISELE: Raquel has always had an innate passion and curiosity. When young, her curiosity often lead to exploration, creation, and experimentation. The results of her experiments were often surprising, but they never failed to bring a good time. Today, she uses this same process of exploration, creation, and experimentation to create products that are centered around real user needs. Raquel currently works as a UX Designer for TaskEasy and has held design roles at other organizations including Mountain America Credit Union, Owlet Baby Care, and Vivint Solar. PANELIST, ALEX CLINE: Alex Cline is a Product Designer at Pluralsight and has spent the last 9 years working across disciplines for tech companies like Asana, Jane, Birchbox, Fab, and Grooveshark. Alex was selected to be a part of Designer Fund’s Bridge (https://www.designerfund.com/#programs) fellowship program, and she has also been featured on podcasts such as Design Details (https://designdetails.simplecast.fm/210) and Diseño Cha Cha Cha (https://www.disenochachacha.com/podcast/2017/5/19/con-alex-estrada). When she’s not making things for the internet, she likes curating mood boards, hiking in the wrong kind of shoes, and learning the ins-and-outs of being a new mom. PANELIST, TREY WALLIS: Trey Wallis is Director of Product at 1-800 Contacts. His passion for problem-solving and building cool things can be traced back to a childhood with too many art projects and not enough studying. With experience building successful user-driven product teams in both enterprise fortune 100 level companies and seed round scrappy startups, Trey has over 15 years of software product management leadership experience. FOOD & BEVERAGES: Light refreshments will be provided SPONSOR: DevMountain LOCATION: 4100 North, Chapel Ridge Rd Suite 350 Lehi, UT 84043
