You don’t need to know how to code to be a product manager. This is true for most companies but you may find a small handful that call out that it is a requirement. You will need to learn more about tech though, it would be helpful to learn what kind of people you’ll be working with and what they do. For example you should know the difference between a backend and front end engineer, and it would be helpful to know how a data scientist can help a product a manager.

New to the bowl but starting to warm up to the idea of purchasing a property either to live in, or just as an investment to generate some passive income.

Would love some guidance on how much house a person can afford, how much someone should put down, how to identify properties that have a good chance of panning out as an investment. For some context, I’m paying about $1600 in rent in TX and earning ~200K annually. ~90k in liquid assets.
