( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

To be fair, marketing and product strategy by necessity involves lots of guessing. Ideally those guesses are turned into testable hypotheses, tested, and the results used to make better next guesses.

Product research and development, even in IT, is often the same but using different data and metrics. There's no one right way that's readily apparent to build a finished project. We build mock-ups, testable units, unit tests, integration tests, and end-user quality tests. We reuse what works and throw other things away.

Anyone afraid to guess and test is just going to make clones of other products. Anyone who doesn't test is just guessing, which is less successful but may work if you're really good at guessing and really lucky.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
