The Difference Between A/B Testing and Multivariate Testing

A/B testing, otherwise known as split testing, is the process of testing two different versions of a web page, feature, user flow, or other resource in order to optimize for a metric or set of metrics (often conversion rate). Multivariate tests are run with a higher number of variables and…

Did Feature Flags Kill the Canary?

The increased usage of feature flags and canary releases (also “canary deployments”) in software development has had a tremendous impact on the overall release process for software companies globally. These canaries and feature flags allow you to test your features in production , convert your monolith to microservices, perform A/B…

As companies implement more innovative practices, they typically realize the faults of using an imperfect environment, like staging. Staging environments are expensive and they often do not match the behavior of production which leads to faulty test results. They also don’t provide any confidence that your features are working before…
