openQA – Avoiding Disasters of Biblical Proportions Through Testing

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 SUSE for the testing of SLES, Fedora for the testing of their distribution, and openSUSE for the testing of both Leap regular release and their Tumbleweed rolling release.

The talk will go into some detail as to how openQA tests a very wide range of scenarios, including multiple architectures, extensions and modules, as well as virtual and “real hardware” platforms. The session will suggest ideas as how it could be used for testing software, operating systems, virtual machine images.

Objective: The audience will get to know openQA and be able to assess its value for own projects afterwards.

Prerequisites: No prior knowledge necessary.
