Experimentation for Engineers (Manning)
Friday, 17 March 2023

With the subtitle "From A/B testing to Bayesian optimization", this book consists of a toolbox of techniques for evaluating new features and fine-tuning parameters. David Sweet starts with a deep dive into methods like A/B testing, and then graduates to advanced techniques used to measure performance in industries such as finance and social media. He shows how to evaluate the changes you make to your system and ensure that your testing doesn’t undermine revenue or other business metrics.
