This Week in Engineering : Obscure 8-Bit Hero Edition
What’s new this week from Engineering at Constructor? Well, any given week the fifteen teams within Constructor’s globally distributed engineering department complete around a hundred tickets and launch them in production as they are ready.
But as a list of a hundred tickets is a bit demanding attention wise, we are going to highlight some of the more interesting things that we released this week and ask that you visualize us smushing bugs and helping customers with the rest of our time, in the style of an exterminator themed Mario from Nintendo. Which actually existed (the character was called Stanley the Bugman). And now the updates! This week we:
- Updated various software dependencies to stay ahead of the curve on security
- Added a new and improved traffic splitter for A/B testing different platform configurations
- Added new data pipelines to predict which group a non-grouped product should exist in
- Added functionality to append structured content to collection results from the customer dashboard
- Conducted an analysis of position bias in results across a range of customers
- Enabled bundle recommendations, a new recommendations algorithm we’ve seen lead to conversion and revenue lifts in multiple ab tests, across most customers
