FOSDEM Testing and Automation Developer Room


Testing and Automation devroom is coming again to FOSDEM. This room is about building better software through a focus on testing and automation at all layers of the stack. From creating libraries and end-user applications all the way down to packaging, distribution and deployment. Testing and automation is not isolated to a single toolchain, language or platform, there is much to learn and share regardless of background!


Since Testing and Automation devroom has been a regular at FOSDEM, here are some ideas of what we would like to see, and what worked in prior years, they're just ideas though. Check out the Archive for inspiration.

Testing in the real, open source world
