Stand and Talk accepted at Linux-Infotage Augsburg!

We are excited to announce that we got both a talk about our project as well as a stand accepted at this year’s “Linux-Infotag” in Augsburg/Germany. The Linux-Infotag Augsburg is a local event about free software and the digital society. It is a well-established traditional event that will take place for the 17th time. Unlike FOSDEM, the Linux-Infotag Augsburg is not a meeting for geeks and developers, but also for regular end-users and other parties that want to learn about Linux and other free software projects.

New team members for follow-up project acquired

Our project started as a student project back in April last year. It was designed for a runtime of 12 months. As with all free software projects based on students’ work, once the project reaches its designated end as defined by the scholar program, the team will transform from study-motivated collaborators to voluntary collaborators. Since the timetables of students are usually pretty full, there is the risk of future development activities to slow down.

Presentation at FOSDEM

Daniel presented SystemTestPortal to a broader audience in the Automation and Testing devroom at FOSDEM today! For our project, this was the first event of this kind, and we are proud that we actually made it directly to FOSDEM! The talk was well-received by the attendees, and we received a number of feature requests. We learned that community members prefer to use docker in order to test-drive new (web) applications, and, thus, we will seriously consider providing a docker image in the near future.

We are happy to announce that the proposal we had submitted to present our project was accepted in the “Testing and Automation” devroom for FOSDEM’18 in Brussels!

In case you don’t know about FOSDEM - FOSDEM is a two-day event organised by volunteers to promote the widespread use of free and open source software.
