One Line Summary

Quality Assurance strategy in Clear LInux project; a case of study


As the Linux community continues to redefine the boundaries for what is possible in a cloud-based Linux distribution running on Intel silicon, quality assurance plays an increasingly important role for the industry. In the Clear Linux Project for Intel Architecture we have prioritised QA since the beginning of the project. From the methodology we use to track the test coverage to a full description of our test strategy. In this presentation we will show how we assure the deployment of a Linux based operating system with more than 60% of test coverage two times per day. We will discuss the benefits of applying our methodology to other Linux based projects, the challenges we face and the benefits for the Linux community. Improving quality of products, shorting the product development time and reducing costs.
