On behalf of the Testing and Continuous Delivery devroom I would like to 
announce that call for participation is now open!

This room is about building better software through a focus on testing 
and continuous delivery practices across all layers of the stack. The 
purpose of this devroom is to share good and bad examples around the 
question “how to improve quality of our software by automating tests, 
deliveries or deployments” and to showcase new open source tools and 


Since this devroom has been a regular at FOSDEM, here are some ideas of 
what we would like to see, and what worked in prior years, they're just 
ideas though. Check out our website for more references:

Testing in the real, open source world:

-  War stories/strategies for testing large scale or complex projects
-  Tools that extend the ability to test low-level code, e.g. 
bootloaders, init systems, etc.
-  Projects that are introducing new/interesting ways of testing "systems"
-  Address the automated testing frameworks fragmentation
-  Stories from end-users (e.g. success/failure)
-  Continuous Integration
-  Continuous Delivery
-  Continuous Deployment
-  Security in Software Supply Chain
-  Pipeline standardization
-  Interoperability in CI/CD
-  Lessons learned

Cool Tools (good candidates for lightning talks):

- Project showcases, modern tooling
- How your open source tool made developing quality software better
- What tools do you use to setup your CI/CD
- Combining projects/plugins/tools to build amazing things "Not enough 
people in the open source community know how to use $X, but here's a 
tutorial on how to use $X to make your project better."
