Hi there, I am a new to Growthbook as well as A/B testing. I'm a bit confused with the Platform and the SDK client. Is the platform a dashboard for experimenters to setup and view experiments? Do I need the platform or just the client SDK is enough to setup and run an experiment? Thanks!
It's currently unclear to me now how I can connect my website/app to the platform.

Hi Ting - thanks for the feedback
The SDK is used to help you do the variation assignments and bucketing of your users in code
it can be used without the rest of the platform
the main platform can be used as an experiment reporting and visualization platform
or it can be used for managing A/B tests using remote configuration
so it can be used as you like really
what are your needs?
if you don't have a data warehouse for events, we can help with that as well

Thanks, Graham! So for the first picture, the platform is linked with my website/app through a data warehouse as experiment reporting.
just wonder for the second picture, how can I use the platform for remote configuring an a/b test?

ya, so in the second picture you can pull in the experiment configurations using an (cacheable) API call
