Participatory Testing
Alan Williamson, Senior Director, Corporate Marketing, SpikeSource, Inc.

Track: Products & Services

Time: 11:35 - 12:20
Location: Seasons Room

Traditional and existing open source testing methodologies are necessary and useful, but they do not take full advantage of the "architecture of participation," which makes open source development so powerful. SpikeSource's goal is to facilitate the adoption of open source software in the enterprise through testing, certification, and support services. SpikeSource has built a "Participatory Testing System" that allows developers to participate by testing their applications as the payload. The test submission service provides a collaborative testing environment for the open source community to contribute tests to help improve the quality of open source components. This talk presents an overview of how Participatory Testing can work as well as demonstrates associated interfaces and tool sets.
