Apple (does) allow selling products with iPhone Apps!

Today I posted a blog about Apple not allowing to sell physical products through an iPhone app. Gladly, I was wrong. I was looking at the Getting Started with In App Purchase on iPhone OS guide which refers to the 'In App Purchase system'. It's true that you can't use that to sell a physical product because of Apple regulation. But you don't need the whole 'In App Purchase' in the first place! So really my bad, but that means there's nothing holding you back from selling huge amounts of clothing, hardware, shoes, lawn mowers (or whatever you sell) through an iPhone app! Great thing to be wrong about :)

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.
