Feedback 1: A little Magento history

Written by Guido Jansen in
September 2010

Having read the open software license, I decided that it is time to learn more about different editions of Magento (Community, Professional & Enterprise).

The best edition I liked is the Community one, because I am not used to pay for software, and of course not for open source software. Although It is obvious that the companies have to pay for the Commercial License, Warranty and Payment Services. In my opinion, the interface of Magento is very simple and user friendly. The sections in the program are also very well classified. My first Magento exercise was to write an instruction for a Magento customer about how to get started with Magento. In order to accomplish this task, I had to look around in the back-end in order to write the instruction in a good sequence. It took me about 6 hours to learn how to add a product in the back-end of Magento. The instruction included such items as how to add the categories, attribute sets, attributes & finally products. Having got the first lesson, I am looking forward to the second one, for which I will be waiting the whole weekend;)

A hierarchy of evidence (or levels of evidence) is a heuristic used to rank the relative strength of results obtained from scientific research. I've created a version of this chart/pyramid applied to CRO which you can see below. It contains the options we have as optimizers and tools and methods we often use to gather data.

This is a bonus episode with Emily Robinson (Senior Data Scientist at Warby Parker) en Lukas Vermeer (Director of Experimentation at Booking.com). In her earlier session that day, Emily said that real progress starts when you put your work online for others to see and comment on which in this case was about Github. Someone from the audience wondered how that works out in larger companies where a manager or even a legal department might not be overly joyous about that to say the least so I asked Emily about her thoughts on that.
