Has LinkedIn Set the Standard for A/B Testing

Richard Harris Richard Harris in Marketing & Promotion Monday, October 5, 2015

In a recent blog post, Nanyu Chen, Senior Applied Research Engineer at LinkedIn, has provided an overview of a new, comprehensive technical paper on the XLNT Platform, LinkedIn's A/B testing platform.

XLNT was built by LinkedIn to help the company make data-driven A/B testing decisions. XLNT was designed to encompass three steps of the testing process: design, deploy and analyze.

I strongly suggest reading his blog post prior to diving in the technical paper. The paper itself is very in-depth and scholarly in nature and the blog post does a great job setting up the paper’s offerings in a more easy to digest way.
