About the Engineering category

A place for the community to discuss engineering-related topics such as database structure, system design, API integration, networking/server infrastructure, and coding. This is also a place to discuss design and structure product teams and finding better ways to work with engineers. Please discuss engineering-tools-related topics in the tools and pro-tips subcategory.


This is NOT a place to request resume reviews or coordinate mock interview sessions. There are plenty of communities better than Prowess that help you do that. This is a place for

  • Meaningful discussions about the day-to-day challenges of product management related to engineering
  • Helping one another by sharing your experiences
  • Develop a deeper understanding of skills required to understand engineering and how to work with engineers, and then work to grow those skills.

This is a place to share your work, inspire others, and get inspired.
