If You Are Doing Experimentation, Do You Need a Roadmap?

“We’re agile, so we don’t need a product roadmap.” In an increasingly agile world, I’ve heard this statement and variations of it time and time again. Organizations implementing agile methods often struggle to see how and where a long-term strategy fits in while working under a philosophy built on uncertainty.… 3 min read

Measuring server-side changes, and why ‘hope is not a strategy’

It’s easy to think of the user interface as the primary target for new functionality, with product teams eagerly watching important business metrics such as conversion rates and user engagement for improvements after each release. But behind the scenes, engineers are continually working on server-side innovations such as changes in… 3 min read

Canary Release and Feature Release with Feature Flags in Continuous Delivery

Canary releases and feature flag rollouts are two common feature release strategies for testing in production, increasing the safety of continuous delivery, deploying faster and more often. Both aim to reduce the “blast radius” of unforeseen problems and build confidence in a release. Both gradually expose new code to users… 3 min read
