  • Using internet-scale data to guide our planning

    by gregwhitworth

    There are so many potential projects we could spend our time on, but like most engineering teams, we have limited time. Since our time is finite, how do we go about deciding which features, bugs, or enhancements should get this valuable resource? Ultimately, it comes down to a variety of inputs, and one of the most important inputs is data. Come learn about some new tools that we’re making public to help you see how this data plays into the decision making process.
