At Optimizely, we are extremely passionate about helping people turn data into action through optimization.  We found that there wasn’t a defined space for experimenters to share ideas, questions, and best practices with a group of like-minded peers.  That's why we created Optiverse, a space for you all to unite, explore, and optimize together.  


It can be intimidating to join a new community, so we've created a list of answers to common questions to help you get started.
