Optimizely Developer Newsletter - September 2017
Welcome to our new monthly developer newsletter. We’ll be bringing you the latest product announcements, best practices, and customer stories.
If you haven't grabbed your Opticon tickets, we're offering $300 off with the code 300OPTICON17. Once you’ve booked your Opticon trip, sign up for free tickets to Developer Night @ Opticon, an evening of lightning talks and networking with Optimizely engineers.
If you create or manage experimentation or campaigns through visual editor, code editor, or REST API, you can now see an activity log in Change History.
Client-side experimentation is great for testing content but what if you want to experiment on your product functionality? In this blog post, John Provine, PM for Optimizely Full Stack explains the difference and use cases for experimenting server-side vs. client-side. We’ve also made an infographic to explain the differences between client and server-side testing.
Using Optimizely Full Stack, Tripping.com was able to increase the number of experiments they ran per month by 300% and now deploy 80% of all new feature updates as experiments.
Tips and Tricks
As part of the developer experience at Opticon, we'll be hosting our first ever Developer Night on October 17th with a series of lightning talks from Optimizely engineers. During the conference, we’ll have several full-length sessions to help developers take their experimentation game to the next level.
It’s the largest global conference for cloud computing and we’ll be there!
