In this meetup, Blair will give a quick introduction to online experimentation and A/B testing.
To keep the tutorial self-contained, Blair will first give an overview of stats fundamentals needed to understand A/B testing and explain how A/B testing is done in an online business. Blair will also cover some of the pitfalls that are common when running online experiments.
