SQuAT Fest objectives

The main objective of the SQuAT Fest is to assist European open source project to bring their software into the AppHub European Open Source Marketplace. In addition, we like to understand the current state of open source software as developed by EU funded projects, and how we can assist them to improve their quality assurance and governance processes.

Who should participate

Project coordinators who like to understand how to establish proper open source governance as part of the exploitation strategy of their projects
Technical people who like to employ a platform for showcasing their results to make their work known, and are interested to learn about tools for software quality assurance.

Participants contribution

Please do not prepare slides! We like participants to engage in an open dialogue about the challenges, problem, and success stories on open source software development. Please prepare a short statement about:

  • Your project in general, and the software you are developing under an open source license;

  • the group of users that you address with your software;

  • the measures that you employ in order to ensure that you deliver quality software;

  • the way you manage your community of contributors and users;

  • the expectations that you have on our workshop.

  • Remember: No slides!


Bring your own software! If you have executables and an installation procedure ready we can immediately assist to bring your software into the AppHub Open Source Marketplace. We will organize a hands-on session on the AppHub platform and the Quality Assurance tool set of OW2.
