About the talk
OS Testing has never been so easy with containers! Testing can be very difficult task especially if it includes the installation process, booting, logging into desktop and verifying GUI applications. There are some good tools like openQA, but unforunately they have a big learning curve and require dedicated hardware. We need more easy-to-use alternatives with basic features that can be used interchangeably on personal laptop/desktop, server or as part of Jenkins, LAVA or GitLab.Thanks to containers we now have ability to perform such task easily anywhere by making use of Docker, QEMU and a simple PyAutoGUI Python module. The presentation will be a walk over this process including a short demo on GitLab which sends keystrokes or commands, mouse clicks to perform sample tasks while saving test results as screenshots or recordings.
