Bye, bye, Core QA team

This is most probably the last post to this blog from Lukas, Jara, Tomas and Petr. The origin Core QA team members work on other parts of NetBeans IDE. Petr, Tomas and Lukas moved to the Cloud Computing QA team at beginning of year 2009. They are back in NetBeans these days but working on different projects then Core and Platform. Jara moved to new project with new responsibilities in first half of 2009 too. It means that there is no QA engineer dedicated to the Core/Platform now - please see Marian's comment explaining the situation.
However there are new community programs that might interest you if you would like to help to test or to fix something in NetBeans Platform (or NetBeans IDE)
  • NetDEV - contribute to NetBeans
  • NetFIX - fix a bug in NetBeans
  • NetCAT 6.8 - NetBeans Community Acceptance Testing Program
Good luck to NetBeans Platform, we really enjoyed the work on it. It was great ride with great community around it. I hope that there will be a chance to meet some of you - users - again. And if you will appear in Prague sometime feel free to contact us with an idea to have some beers in a pub (the worst you could hear is "no, thank you, we don't have time" ;)
Anyway, we will stay close to the NetBeans Platform in future as NetBeans IDE is based on it ;)

Who we are - Core & Platform QE

We are team of quality assurance engineers responsible for the quality of NetBeans platform and the core parts of the IDE. Right now the team consist of four members. Let see who is responsible for what.

Jara
Jara
Jara has been with Core QA team for long time. His main area of responsibilities is Plugin manager and Help System. Jara will be responsible for the new Maven project support too. He is our Accessibility(a11y) expert and he develops the UI Accessibility Tester module that we use for A11Y testing og the NB IDE.

Tomas
Tomas started in Core QA during his university studies. He joined the team as "full time member" few months ago. He enhanced the hudson with the functionality that we needed to be able to run our test on more machines (hudson4qe). I expect more detailed post about it from Tomas later. Tomas is testing and maintaining functionality of Projects, Explorer, Favorites, Ant.

Petr
Petr
Petr is studing a university. He is working only on part time. Anyway he is very valuable for the team. When he is hardware/OS geek and fan we let him to play with all the strange machines setups that we use for testing. He is also responsible for Window System, Output, CLI, User registration, Satisfaction survey functionality testing in the IDE.

He used to be leading both QE teams - Core and Mobility for a while but now he is focusing fully on Core and Platform. Lukas is responsible for the APISupport functionality and Options testing.
