I sent my first Cushion newsletter in over a year and a half, which sounds crazy, but nonetheless, it feels great to send them again.
Before diving into analytics, I decide to spend time writing database queries that could validate some of my assumptions using existing data.
After building Cushion so far based purely on assumptions and intuition, I finally start to think about using analytics to help guide me.
A thought-provoking conversation leads me to realize that Cushion is still solid and worth iterating on, instead of restarting from scratch.
After establishing a new guiding principle to keep API requests simple, I describe how I could refactor a complex view that relies on a heavy API request.
I discuss a pain point in the current Cushion involving the number of clicks it takes to get to where you need to go. What if it only took one?
