Introduction to QA at AIUB — February 13, 2016

Introduction to QA at AIUB

On 11th February 2016, FSA members of ‘Firefox at AIUB’ club organized an introductory event about Quality Assurance which is now a very popular platform for contributing. In developing products and services, Quality Assurance is any systematic process of checking to see whether a product or service being developed is meeting specified requirements. Last year, many QA events and contributor mentoring days happened on several universities and gain popularity by recruiting contributors from those universities. As a result, we also want to spread the popularity among enthusiasts from our university. The event was to create an awareness and start the hype. Main objective of this event was to introduce A-Z of contribution in QA and get more contributors among interested.

 

The event starts early in the auditorium. I(Khalid Syfullah Zaman) started the event with the introduction of QA and its importance on IT sector. But first, I took a brief discussion on Mozilla’s Missions and how to check updates via mailing list. On the QA session, I overdone the whole steps with the help of slide presentation.
