Hello all, this is my first post here.
I've been working as an assistant product manager at a software developer for 18 months, and I'm looking to put my resume out there within the next 6 months, as a either a product manager, or as an APM in a larger company.
I've been exposed to C++, Java, and .NET, but I'm trying to figure out how much exposure is sufficient so that companies will be interested in interviewing me to learn more. I'm posting here because (I think) C++ is the most important skill I need to be comfortable with.
Right now, I know enough to talk to my programmers, and I know enough to know what is realistic and what isn't (at least when it comes to reaching milestones). But I can't write my own code (although I understand the basic syntax).
I'd like to figure out what would make me a stronger candidate so I can focus on learning/strengthening those skills over the next six months or so.
My longterm goal is to oversee PLM of a given software product.
I tried to keep this post short, I hope it's enough info to get a feel for what I am looking for. Can anybody toss me some suggestions, or point me to a resource that will help me out?
