To stay competitive in our current software development era we can no longer rely on classical product development methods. They are too slow.  Your product will be left behind as your competition blazes ahead in product development and customer optimization.  Buzz word concepts like being a ‘lean startup’ or ‘fail fast’ require rapid iteration – the ability to understand and quickly respond to customer needs and behaviors.  In this talk I will cover an overview, from a data science perspective, of how to go about taking a product with no telemetry to being a data driven product.  Starting with the set up all the way to advanced methods one would want to use including experimentation and advance ML.
