Should product managers know how to code? There is no one right answer. Both yes and no are valid options. There are pros and cons to both these opinions.
I do not want to provide my personal opinion at this point as I am waiting for a decent number of responses. Publishing my personal opinion may result in a bias which I am looking to avoid.
At the same time, I do not want to limit this to a particular demographic. Many product managers come from a specific field of study, but I want the results to be as broad based as possible. For this reason, I am deliberately trying to get responses from a diverse audience base.
The results of the poll will be used to validate the common hypothesis that most people expect product managers to know at least a basic level of coding.
For the purposes of this article, even the ability to write a simple SQL script is a valid form of coding.
However, depending on the industry type, the knowledge of various other programming language may also be required.
