Results of the WebQA Marketplace Manual/Automation – Test Day – June 28th

Florin Strugariu

Hi all, it’s me again,

I want to thank all the folks that got involved in our test day yesterday. We had lots of fun working with Marketplace and MozTrap, learned some Jedi IRC tricks and  played with Selenium and Python.

Providing options, between manual and automation, proved to be the most important thing of the test day. Users that had no experience with  testing worked with MozTrap and found it really easy to interact with and got to know Marketplace better. The most experienced testers dove right into Selenium and Python and did a little of re-factoring and some new tests.

It was really easy to let the user decide what they want to do and then try to teach them to install the automation environment.

Being involved in this event it was really interesting. We have met some really cool people:

We would really appreciate an email on our mail list with feedback for the test day. Send us your opinion so we can make the next test day better and cooler than the last one.
