Do you need to show the impact of your team’s work? Do you want to understand what effects your projects are having on the world? This session will show you some tools that can help you get started on these tasks. And we won’t recommend you do a Randomized Control Trial (RCT).

We’ll provide you with a set of tools that range from true beginner to expert coder and a set of first steps that you can use to get started.
