Experimentation from Science to Software

GSB 124

Working in technology, we have a collection of tools we can use to decide how to improve the products that we’re building. One of these powerful tools is controlled experimentation through A/B testing which can help us make decisions towards making a better tech product. Comparing my background in scientific research with my current work as a software engineer, I’ll explore how experimental thinking can help us build better software.

Through the lens of the scientific method I’ll cover:
* How to use data-driven decision making to your advantage
* What you can learn from experimentation through success and failure
* How A/B testing can increase velocity of and confidence in your software and product development
