Failing fast

Let's talk about how to build features fast, test them, and let them fail quickly! Even the most advanced developers learn that the only option is to double what they think it will really take..At InboxDollars, we moved to a "MVP" development process a year ago. The entire company has adopted a fail fast mentality. Build things small...less than a week (sometimes two), roll it, then split test and see if it wins. If it doesn't, move on! If it does well, then iterate!

Aimed at development managers, architects, senior/mid developers. More of an approach on writing code then anything.
