How software that runs Wikipedia is tested

The software that runs Wikipedia, MediaWiki, is developed in the open just like Wikipedia itself. This talk will cover how MediaWiki is tested, along with mistakes and successes made along the way.

The code and Jenkins jobs are visible to everybody. Only passwords are hidden. If you are interested in contributing, you will learn how to get involved.

I will mention one pattern, page object, and a lot of tools: Git, Ruby, RubyGems, Cucumber, Selenium WebDriver, Watir, Bundler, page-object gem, Jenkins, Sauce Labs and probably a few more.

I think it is important to have a few reference implementations of open source test automation projects available to everybody. This is our contribution.
