Join Portland's Digital PM Community
Digital project managers and producers serve a unique and vital role when it comes to shipping successful projects. The role morphed out of the collision of web development, software engineering, and creative agencies. Given the ever-changing complex nature of the web and the less than two decades of history for the role, there is a lack of thought leadership in the digital PM space and only a fledgling community worldwide. It's time to change that by coming together to answer some important questions:
- How do we collectively get better at our jobs?
- How do we bring increased credibility to the digital PM role?
- What common problematic scenarios do we encounter and what are the best strategies for those problems?
- What are the most successful processes to ship projects?
- What tools can make our lives easier?
The Portland tech and agency communities are small and tight-knit, so let's bring a feeling of increased community to the digital PM role in Portland as well. PDX Digital PM has two primary goals:
- Bring digital PMs together via in-person meetups
- Serve as a voice for the community and amplify the voices of its members
That's where you come in!
