‘Feature Testing’- which is a test set for testing new or existing feature of the product is consider as an onset process to step into ‘Mozilla QA’ platform. Students who show enthusiasm in QA platform usually begin their journey as a QA contributor through feature testing. So to present its continuation to the students of our university, fellow Mozillians and FSAs of ‘Firefox at AIUB‘ organized an introductory workshop which is a followup event of ‘Introduction to QA‘.
The event was held on 7th April 2016 at ‘American International University – Bangladesh’ as I(Khalid Syfullah Zaman) along with Asif Raihan and Anisur Rahman was host of this event. The event starts with demonstration of what actually ‘feature testing’ is and why it is important? Then participants introduce to some major features of Firefox browser. Then they grasp step-by-step procedures of downloading latest channels from Firefox archive, creating clean profile for testing, understand test cases and how to reproduce those steps and most important, it a test case fails then how to file it on Bugzilla. ‘A to Z of QA’ and ‘Bug Writing Guidelines’ were also provided as additional resource so they can understand it properly.
After that, all participant perform workshop on ‘Unified Autocomplete’ which was an easy and understandable for beginner. The event got more recreational when Mahbub Alam Papun and Asif Raihan accompany participants with fun session.
Outcome and feedback from participants showed positive. Many of them showed interest to contribute in ‘Mozilla QA’. From this workshop, they will surely participate on upcoming future testdays.
