Amplitude’s social media accounts

Our LinkedIn account is a must-follow for Amplitude news, product launches, and thought leadership. For insightful and personal commentary on digital analytics, add Amplitude’s leaders to your list:

Amplitude events

You might want to make some room on your calendar. Our full roster of events throughout the year includes everything from live, hands-on product tours and demos to panel strategy discussions and workshops. When we’re not hosting our own events, we’re proud to participate in our technology partners’ events, such as Snowflake Summit.

On-demand learning

If you want to get serious about product management and digital analytics, consider signing up for Reforge courses. Founded by Brian Balfour, former VP at Hubspot, Reforge has made a name for itself with high-quality content and marquee-name instructors.


Podcasts are a great way to learn on the go—and Reforge’s podcast, Unsolicited Feedback, is essential listening for your playlist. Hosted by founder Brian Balfour and Fareed Mosavat, Reforge’s former chief development officer, episodes feature candid conversations with product and growth leaders.

Lenny’s Podcast, hosted by the author of the widely read Lenny’s Newsletter, takes a practical tack, offering insights and tips designed to help listeners build, launch, and grow their own products. Together, the episodes represent a who’s who in tech, including leaders like Amplitude’s VP of Growth Laura Schaffer.

Substacks and newsletters

Although not Amplitude publications per se, Run the Business and databeats are the products of two thought leaders with direct ties to the company. Run the Business grew out of the personal musings of Amplitude VP of Product Management, Ibrahim Bashir, who began writing about the work of building and shipping products as a way to clarify his own ideas. Now, it's a sprawling Substack that explores every aspect of product management.

Another great read is databeats, a weekly newsletter that evolved from Arpit Choudhury’s work at his Data-Led Academy, which was acquired by Amplitude. The content? It’s designed to “bridge the gap between data people and non-data people.”
