Presented by:

Dan Čermák

from SUSE

Dan joined SUSE to work on development tools as part of the developer engagement program, after working on embedded devices. He is an active open source contributor being involved in various upstream projects and a package maintainer in downstream Linux distributions, like openSUSE and Fedora. Beside testing and cryptography his passions include automating everything, documentation and software design.

openQA is a system integration testing framework for testing whole systems (in contrast to individual components, like programs, libraries, etc.) and is the heart and soul of the automated QA behind the openSUSE, SUSE Linux Enterprise and Fedora distributions.

The original purpose of openQA is to automatically test graphical user interfaces, more specifically to verify snapshots of the installer of the openSUSE Tumbleweed distribution. This is achieved by leveraging openCV and VNC to interact with the system under test like a user sitting in front of a computer would. openQA has by now outgrown this role and is used for other scenarios as well, for example testing on bare metal, acceptance testing of appliances and integration with the Linux Test Project.

This talk will highlight how openQA is currently used for automated verification of the openSUSE, SUSE Linux Enterprise and Fedora distributions and showcase a few emerging features, like testing of bare metal hardware (e.g. the Raspberry Pi by openSUSE or various Laptops by QubesOS) or for integration testing of the Kiwi Image Builder.

Come and join to learn more about exciting new developments around openQA!
