The content of the presentation will be based on my current Setting up a full stack for web testing series.
This being a BarCamp I did a presentation as well. Mine was about A/B testing or multivariate testing. It’s not exactly the same thing but I tend to lump them together.
I collected all the background material on delicious with the abtest tag.
You can download the presentation (PDF, 2MB). There were some more nice pictures in my live presentation but I stripped them for online consumption for copyright reasons.
They talk about how they mine lots of data and get real-time reports from them. Basically it comes down to using a patched/extended PostgreSQL plus a simplified query language that they convert to SQL.
In that context it might be interesting to check out Bizgres, though it was not mentioned in the presentation. The Bizgres web site says:
bq. The Bizgres Project aims to make PostgreSQL the world’s most robust open source database for Business Intelligence.
Vor meinem Vortrag stellt Marcel Vogt Apollo vor.
Der Workshop findet am Freitag, 25. Mai um 14:30 im Raum Newton 1011 im Technopark Zürich statt, Daniel Vogt beginnt um 13:30.
Melde dich bei mir, falls du gerne kostenlos zum Workshop kommen willst. Generell kostet die Teilnahme.
It’s much the same as I’ll talk about on September 12 at the Webtuesday event.
