Eclipse Testing Day 2011
Twitter hashtag: #testday2011
Following the success of the Eclipse Testing Day in September 2010, BREDEX GmbH have teamed up with the Eclipse Foundation to organize a second Testing Day in 2011.
The Testing Day is a day-long event for technical developers, testers, architects, project leads and managers to learn more about testing. The theme for this year's Testing Day is "Testing: Technology and Process". We will select talks focusing on test processes and the technology to support them. Participants will learn how technology and process fit together, where they can complement each other and where there is potential for improvement.
The event will focus on the following topics:
- Testing with, at and for Eclipse projects
- Testing processes in theory and in practice
- Case studies of testing projects
- Process and technology - what works and what doesn't
- Process improvement
- Eclipse tooling and technology for the test process
Attendees will have the chance to hear speakers from leading companies within the testing space and experts from the Eclipse and testing community.
