Program Managers and Powerpoint

Today, I spent the ENTIRE day on powerpoint. PM’s get made fun of all the time for their seemingly lack of any skills at all. Everytime I talk to one of my developer buddies, I always get the same old question. “So what DO you do anyways?” And then they go on and on about how PMs just get coffee, schedule meetings, hang out, and such nonsense.

Why does no one care about my amazing powerpoint skillz?! This is what we do all day: (All done in powerpoint. Amazing huh?)

Note: I did not do this. I actually spent the entire day on powerpoint drawing mockups and writing the startup’s functional spec. Not terribly exciting, so I thought a video would be cooler.
