Hi there, I’m looking to leave my current role as a Senior Analyst in digital strategy to go into product management.

Has anyone made a similar move?
How hard will it be to transition?
Is there anything I can do to help? Been looking at Product School to do a course, is it actually going to boost my chances or is it hurlât a waste of 2k?
Any advice welcomed.

Many thanks.

5+ years of full-time job as developer and still waiting to reverse a LinkedList at work.

Since there is a heavy impetus on solving Tree, LinkedList, and Graph problems for tech interviews, it can naturally make freshers believe that these concepts will be used in day-to-day life at work. In reality, most of these DSA concepts are already implemented in some libraries our code uses and we rarely have to code such Algorithms by hand.

What's say?
