Automation Training day (May 28th)

May 28, 2014

Hi Mozillians!

We are going to continue the round of Automation Training Days! The next one is this Wednesday on May 28th in the #automation channel.

What is this about? Well, we are a bunch of enthusiastic people working in automation, all kinds of tools and various projects and we’d like to introduce you to this part of Mozilla. It’s an opportunity to learn new things and experience automation on different projects.

We had the first one this quarter last Wednesday, you can find here the details about how it went.

At each training day we’ll go through the basic stuff, so don’t worry if you’ve missed the previous ones. And if you are already familiar with this, we’ll guide you day by day through your chosen tasks. Imagine the satisfaction you’ll feel seing your one and done tasks completed or your first automation patch landed!

We have worked on composing a list of tasks for all sorts of levels and timeframes. From a basic task completed in 5 minutes to lots of code lines and days maybe to finish up. But remember, we’ll be around every day in the #automation channel, not only during the training days.
So whenever you have the time to work on your task and feel stuck, you can reach to us to help you through.

The tasks for Automation were added to One and Done tool, and you can find them in the right order to get started in the etherpad below. There you’ll also find the latest updates as we’re managing and collecting all data from the event:
