Overview

This is a rough overview of the Myna testing process, to give you some familiarity with the steps involved.

For each experiment you run, you’ll follow the same simple procedure:

  • design your experiment
  • do a little bit of set up in Myna
  • add a small piece of code to your website
  • sit back and let the experiment run!

This is where Myna takes over.

  • a user loads one of your pages which contains an experiment
  • the page asks Myna to suggest a variant, and Myna responds
  • the page uses the suggestion to display the correct variant to the user
  • if the user goes on to achieve a conversion goal, the page sends Myna a ‘reward’
  • Myna learns from the reward and prefers that variant a little more in the future

All that’s left is to watch the results roll in.

You can keep up to date with the experiment’s progress using the real-time results on on our dashboard. The winning variant turns green at the point when the experiment ends.
