Gundars will go through most common design mistakes and how to fix them.

  • Nikita Tihonovs from Intexsys will give a talk “UI/UX Benchmarking: a thorny path towards having trustworthy a/b test results”
    Nikita will share how a 800 million US company went from applying best practices and intuitive solutions to a fully data-driven UX approach, in particular – about A/B testing.  A/B testing has been around for 2 centuries, but is it really that simple? Is there a silver bullet like simply adding Google Optimize to your website? You will hear a story of 3 years stepping on every possible rake that has finally led us to having a complete and precise process. This keynote is a practical guide on how NOT to screw up when planning an a/b test, running it, and analyzing the results.
