My Journey Upstream with tlog Testing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Want to get involved in Open Source but don't know where to start?

Try writing tests!

A lot of projects already have tests upstream with the source code.

As a Quality Engineer working on RHEL, I rarely worked on upstream projects. Most of my tests were written in private Downstream repos. For tlog, I wanted to change that.

To contribute tests upstream I had to learn a different workflow. This presentation will show my journey contributing tests upstream to the tlog project.

Who will benefit from this presentation?
* Anyone writing tests Downstream that wants to move upstream
* Anyone looking to start contributing upstream (with tests!)

What will be covered in this presentation?
* Upstream vs Downstream testing
* A basic upstream workflow
* My experience contributing tests upstream
* Lessons learned

Take-aways from this presentation?
* A better understanding of the upstream contribution process
* A new found desire to start contributing tests upstream
