South By Southwest is upon us. Everyone from robotics engineers to heads of optimization will descend on Austin, TX from March 13-March 16 to experience the Interactive portion of the festival. This year, Interactive offers more than 800 sessions. 800 over four days!

To make the decision-making process slightly easier for those of you attending, the marketing team at Optimizely combed through those 800 and selected 12 that we believe are most relevant to marketers focused on growing their businesses through data and testing.

Oli Gardner has probably seen and critiqued more landing pages than anyone on the Internet.

We invited him to speak at our upcoming roadshow in Chicago to do just this: call out ideas for improvement on landing pages of eager attendees live on stage.

We recently interviewed Oli to give you a preview of what he’s all about.

We are thrilled to announce that this summer, The Optimizely Experience is coming to a city near you.

What is The Optimizely Experience? Good question. After the success of OptiCon, our first customer conference held in San Francisco this past April, we realized just how excited our customers were to connect with us and each other in person.

Between July and September we’ll be hosting events in Seattle, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Silicon Valley. Each event is free—yes, totally free to attend.

I’m thrilled to announce that Optimizely has acquired Synference, a machine learning optimization company founded in Dublin. As part of the acquisition, Synference founders Fergal Reid and Conrad Lee will join Optimizely’s product and development teams full time. We think the approach they’ve taken with Synference has huge potential to deliver on the promise of machine learning-powered optimization and testing.
