HI, I’M PATRICK CHOI.
Coming from an interdisciplinary background acquired at the Technical University of Munich I have a passion for all things startup, deep tech and digital technologies and am eager to challenge myself to reach new heights.
I created this website because I wanted to put myself out there. It doesn’t just serve as a creative outlet but having an online presence helps me to stay commited to the goals I set for myself.
For instance, I set up my own Impossible List (which is more than just setting goals or a bucket list) to avoid stagnation. As a lifelong learner, I like to read books which is why I keep a Reading List here as well.
In any case, I have much greater projects planned, so stay tuned!
Becoming a Product Manager at the Digital Product School
The Digital Product School, aka DPS, is where the best talents from all over the world come together in interdisciplinary teams and learn how to build digital products that users really love. With the admission into the DPS as a Product Manager, I have the amazing opportunity to learn the ins and outs of being a product manager from the best. I’ll have an own team with a software engineer, an AI specialist and an interaction designer, and we will build a digital product solving a real world challenge in 3 months! It sure is exciting!
The program is especially valuable in my eyes as Product Management isn’t something one can study at a university commonly, but here I can learn from the best and gain practical experience. Being able to explore many different roles early on is incredibly helpful for me to see what is most fun and rewarding for me to pursue.
Working through Harvard’s CS50 course
Harvard’s CS50 course is taught by the amazing David J. Malan. “Introduction to the intellectual enterprises of computer science and the art of programming.
It was a super challenging yet extremely fun experience. I absolutely recommend it if you are not already an expert and like to learn the whole package of Computer Science that is demanding yet doable.
For example, for the last problem set I built a web application where anyone can reigster as a user, buy and sell stocks.
I also finished the final project! I made a productivity dashboard. For more check out this video demo or my GitHub.
