About Folding Burritos
I'm Daniel, the person behind this website. I've been developing, launching and managing digital products for over 14 years now. I've worn many hats (and still do), but the one that's been with me the longest has been "Product Manager".
I created this site back in 2015 as my personal blog, wrote a couple of really popular articles, developed a crippling case of imposter syndrome, stopped writing, temporarily moved it to another domain for a project that didn't pan out (called career.pm), and now it's back here, with a new mission.
My goal is to create the best place to find any kind of product management resource—there are over 5,000 entries already! You can search for articles, podcasts, books, blogs, videos, courses and all kinds of stuff, all catalogued by topics. And if you sign up, you can create your own profile of interests and get a customized content feed — automatically updated on the site, via email or RSS.
Consider this new site still very much an MVP. There are tons of things I'd like to add, and your feedback and ideas would be invaluable, so please get in touch.
About the site's name...
I often get asked "why the hell is your site called Folding Burritos?". Fair question, so here it goes:
First, I freakin' love burritos. Both eating and making them. Mainly the eating part though, because I suck at making them.
Second, I wanted a distinctive, rememberable name for my site.
One day, while struggling to fold a burrito, it hit me. In order to create a great burrito, you need the right amount of ingredients (so it doesn't overflow or it's too floppy), the right combination of ingredients (so it's tasty) and the right technique to fold it (so it doesn't fall apart). "Huh, how's that for a product management metaphor?"—I thought. And boom: the name was chosen.
