Yelling As A Service: Adventures in Unofficial QA

Accepted Session
Short Form
Scheduled: Tuesday, June 21, 2016 from 3:45 – 4:30pm in B302/303


What goes into making a helpful bug report, if you're not even given access to the repository? Why should you, the user, report bugs? How do you navigate a series of gatekeepers who don't want to acknowledge your bugs? How do you maintain a good relationship with people in charge of a project that's screwing up your whole life?


Using examples from real life, we will discuss some ways to apply a keen eye for detail to a project in order to generate helpful bug reports, and take accountability for project quality all the way to the top if necessary.


bugs, quality assurance, project management from the bottom up

Speaking experience

Rev. Lunatic has spoken at past years of Open Source Bridge. This is a new talk which has heretofore been confined to work meetings, bars, and excerpted on a very memorable morning in an all-hands auditorium with the CEO and CIO.
