Oct. 22, 2012 - PRLog -- San Francisco, CA - Software developers and mobile application builders care about what the product does, how they built the product, how the product is used and how long it takes to get a new feature out the door.  Product managers are concerned with how to position and describe the value of the product, how to identify and reach the target market, and what the customer has to say about the product in order to determine feature priorities, increase efficiency for next versions, and create messaging about the benefits of the product for various audiences.

Mike Mayo, Rackspace iOS Developer, will speak at the weekly Global Product Management Talk on Monday, October 29, 2012 at the simultaneous times of 10:00 AM Pacific Time, 12:00 noon CST Chicago, and 1:00 PM EST New York. Participants are welcome to listen live at, call in to talk on the show (323) 927-2957 and to participate on Twitter by following @ProdMgmtTalk and tweeting using the hashtag #ProdMgmtTalk.

Mike says, "Left to ourselves, developers throw things against the wall to see if they'll stick. Having someone care about all aspects of the product beyond the build is a great thing. Looking forward to discussing how developers and product managers collaborate on the Global Product Management Talk."
