Making with Eclipse · Bof
Wednesday, 20:30, 1 hour | Alameda
Who is testing with, at or for Eclipse? What kinds of tests are being done at what levels? Where is testing at the moment and what are the next steps for testing in the Eclipse community? We’d like to meet testers working in and around the Eclipse to swap stories, best practices and pitfalls. If you have any specific suggestions or want to get involved as an organizer, then feel free to join in!
Alexandra is a vegetarian linguist who spends much of her time working with customers on their automated tests and test processes. She can also often be found at conferences talking about testing and agility. When at the office she is a part of the development team - representing the customer / user perspective for software. She helps to write user stories, brings feedback from the field and enjoys discussing and influencing how software takes shape. The uniting factor of all these things is that Alexandra occupies a place between the development side and the customer perspective - and enjoys being there :)
Michaela Greiler is doing her PhD in the Software Engineering Research Group at the Delft University of Technology. Her research focuses on developing efficient testing methodologies for plug-in based systems, in particular for Eclipse.
She holds a Master's degree in Computer Science, has presented her work at various international conferences and workshops, and she has won a best paper award for her presentation on Understanding Plugin Test Suites at WCRE 2010.
