openQA - Avoiding Disasters of Biblical Proportions
Richard is from England but currently lives in Fürth in Germany, and is employed as Software Architect (Distributions) at SUSE. Involved in openSUSE/SUSE since 2003, Richard has contributed to various aspects of the project, including supporting users on IRC, testing/bug reporting, packaging, artwork, and governance, serving as the projects Chairman for 5 years. Most recently, Richard created the concept of the MicroOS Desktop which he proudly uses as his daily driver.
What do we mean, biblical? 40 years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanos, human sacrifice, mass hysteria, dogs and cats living together... and on that note, did you know that openQA is used by both openSUSE and Fedora? What is so awesome about this tool that traditional distribution enemies are now working together?
openQA is an automated testing tool, capable of full system, console, and graphical application testing. This session will give an introduction to openQA's capabilities, share how it is used by openSUSE for the testing of Tumbleweed and Leap, and suggest ideas to attendees as how it could be used for testing their software, operating systems, or virtual machine images.
