Hey Carlos, thanks for doing the AMA! I would love to know the difficulties and solution of growing Product School in the early beginning. Is networking effect the major growth channel? If yes, how did you capitalise the potential?

Hey Carlos it's so amazing to see how you still take time out and are so connected to the product community even after the exponential growth of Product School in the last 2 years. I remember being part of one of the early batches @ PS in the valley and you were my instructor. Thanks for everything you have done reshaping the product community for the better.

Hey Carlos, thank you for doing this AMA! I've always been a fan of Product School - it opens a new door for me and teaches me so many new things :) My 2 questions are: 1/ Product-related fields and jobs have been on fire for several years now, and it seems like everyone wants to jump into product. What do you think about the next thing for product jobs and people? New trends, skills, jobs, or even crises? 2/ What's your biggest challenge with Product School now and how do you plan to tackle it?
