This year I've been talking about skills in testing, and today I want to talk about a big one: Multi-Variate optimization.
Sounds impressive, don't it?
Don't worry. While Multi Variate Optimization is important in test, it is also a simple concept, one you probably use at work every day ... and one that you can get better at.
We all all familair with optimizing a single variable: Trying to get the best price for a product without trading off anything else.
Multi-variable optimization involved trading off other things.
