Automation Training Day September 22nd

September 22, 2014

Hi Mozillians!

Guess what, we’re coming back with more training days! Since last time we did this, we’ve gathered feedback and decided to try different week days so it’ll be easier for everyone to join at least once. Last training days were all on Wednesday and some mentioned they always have a busy day and would like if it can be organized in another day as well. That day has come, we’ll do one next Monday!

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.

On the #automation channel, most of us are available on Europe day-time, but we’ll also be able to cover at least a few hours of US time.

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:
