The Lean Startup was an awesome manifesto, but how does it work in practice? How do you implement cohort analytics and A/B splits? How much testing is "enough"? How can Metrics Driven Development help you to prioritize features? What about feature toggles, canary testing and and an application immune system? In this session we'll look at practical approaches to implementing lean startups using Ruby and Rails.
