Come up with a plan how to encourage and perform constant user testing in Drupal. The BoF continues on what has been said in the Session "User Testing in Drupal".


  • User testing is tedious, what can we do to make it more fun?
  • The main problem is that in a test, you question your own work. This is unpleasant, because you might find out it has issues. Or is this no issue?
  • One needs testing persons. How can one make it easy for them so they may participate in testing Drupal again? Who are the people we need for that?
  • Generally two ways of testing can be done: completely remote, or with you directly watching the Tester. Which one is better?
  • There is also the "big solution" (formal Studies like in Minnesota and Baltimore. We also need those. What role do they play, and what role play smaller ones?
  • How can we utilize existing Infrastructure to minimize redundant work? Maybe the DROP program can be used and extended? Do the issue queues help?
