Product Potluck is a monthly gathering of product managers here in Austin, TX. The event starts with an hour of networking during which time you get to enjoy a beverage and vote on the topics for the night.
Usually there are 3-4 speakers who have prepared material and the two with the top votes win. The best part of Product Potluck is the collaboration that occurs during the presentation. Attendees are encouraged to share their own expertise and experience. The shared discussion is packed with information and usually very entertaining.
Here is the presentation I attended last week from Dr. Briones on Value on Use Analysis for New Product Introductions and some of the Twitter notes that were captured during the talk:
