Become more technical without learning how to code
Join top product managers in leveling up your technical skills and ability to communicate with engineers.
ACCELERATING TECH CAREERS FOR PROFESSIONALS FROM:
Become more technical without learning how to code in just 5 weeks for up to 4 hours a week.
Coding is the least effective way to become more technical.
Being technical means having a solid grasp of available technologies, learning the trade-offs of technical decisions and being able to communicate technical concepts using technical jargon.
Learning how to code won't teach you that! Sure, learning how to write "for-loops" and assign variables is critical for a developer, but it's meaningless for anyone else. Plus, learning how to code is time-consuming, and quite frankly, it's really hard to master!
Understand Technical Trade-offs
The best way to learn is by doing. After each technical module, there's one or more hands-on exercises to help you think critically about the trade-offs of various technical solutions.
You'll do exercises like:
- Design, mock, and document an API
- Design a microservices architecture and create a software diagram
- Design your own database schema (using a real database!)
- Set up a CI/CD deployment pipeline
Be Able to Communicate Technically
Being an effective technical communicator is an important part of being credible! The course program teaches you all of today's most popular terminologies, engineering lingo, and fundamental engineering concepts.
Once you understand the fundamental concepts behind technical terms, you'll be able to:
- Speak about products from a technical perspective
- Communicate effectively with engineers
- Sound credible when speaking to engineers, leaders, interviewers, and investors
Impress Interviewers with your Technical Knowledge
More and more, companies are looking to hire product managers with technical skills and knowledge. Companies want candidates that can communicate and collaborate effectively with engineers, and are knowledgeable on available technologies.
The Skiplevel program teaches popular topics asked during PM interviews like:
- How to collaborate with engineers effectively
- What are APIs and their components?
- How to read software diagrams
- What is the process of developing software?

Product Manager, Climate Advisors
Before Skiplevel, I struggled to understand the breadth of the problems my team were tasked with solving. It was difficult to follow along during engineering meetings, and understand why decisions should go one way rather than another. After the Skiplevel program, I’m much more knowledgeable and confident in meetings with developers and during interviews. Skiplevel helped me become more technical in a rather short time period, and I’m a much better product manager because of it.

Prior to taking the Skiplevel course, I felt insecure about launching a tech company because of my lack of technical knowledge. But I found the structure of the course and the way the technical concepts were taught made it so easy for me to grasp and retain the knowledge. I now have so much more credibility when speaking with developers and investors!
