Meet up

London Ruby December Meetup

Monday, 12th December at CodeNode, London

This meetup is run by LRUG: London Ruby User Group. Starts at 6:30 PM.

Join this Ruby meetup with Simon Coffey, Claire Tran and Mark Burns where they will give talks on A/B test file, Ruby as a learning language, and Software architecture analysis with runtime type detection in ruby.

An A/B test is for life, not just for Christmas

A/B tests are simple: you have a change you want to make; you define what "conversion" is; you randomly show the change to half your users, and see if "conversion" goes up or down with the change. But what if the effects are more complex?

I'll talk about an experiment we ran that initially targeted a single measure of conversion but had some knock-on effects, and how we were able to study them. I'll share some very easy things you can do right away to get more information out of your A/B tests, and hopefully convince you there's more to them than deciding on some copy, or the colour of a button.

Makes developers happy;

A hypothesis.
