Quick refresher — DevDiscuss is the first original podcast from DEV all about the burning topics that impact all our lives as developers.

Episode Info

In S7E6, we explore A/B testing — a UX research practice that involves randomly presenting a group of users with two variants (A and B) to see which "performs" the best. A/B testing is incredibly important in the field of software development because it helps deliver the highest level of value to users without assuming huge risks. We can't wait to explore this topic together!

Host:

  • @ben — Creator of DEV & Co-Founder of Forem

Guest:

  • David Sweet is a quantitative trader, adjunct professor at Yeshiva University, and author of the book, Tuning Up: From A/B testing to Bayesian Optimization*.
