Predicting the future is hard and it requires a lot of assumptions, also known as beliefs, also known as faith.  In “Assumptions: Check yo self, before you wreck yo self” we explore the consequences of beliefs when constructing predictive models.  We’ll walk through the process of developing a demand forecast for Evo, a Seattle-based outdoor recreation retailer, and discuss how assumptions influence the behavior of your application and ultimately the decisions you make.
