Nightwatch, Webpack and vue.js!!!

a project by abelarbi

Nightwatch.js is a Node.js based End-to-End (E2E) testing solution for browser based apps. It's based on Webdrive, meaning it's a very reliable way for me to test HAWK UI! It's a great opportunity to learn Webpack, PhantomJS nightwatch and to set up a TDD approach with any new features written with vue.js, the framework which we will be using in HAWK from now on.

Setup UEFI HTTPBoot with OVMF and try to write/run test on openQA

a project by bchou

HTTPBoot was added into UEFI SPEC since 2.5. It aims to replace PXE and provides more features. Actually, the concept of HTTPBoot is similar to PXE. It starts with the HTTP URL from the DHCP server and fetches the data with the HTTP protocol. The key difference between HTTPBoot and PXE is the support of DNS. With DNS, the firmware and the bootloader can resolve the domain name so it's possible to pass the well-known URL to download the image instead of the explicit IP URL. Besides, HTTP is designed to cross different domains, while tftp (PXE) is only for the local network. Part1:

(Functional) Reactive Programming (Web) programming

a project by bergmannf

I want to use this Hackweek to explore (Functional) Reactive Programming to be able to use it in my day-to-day work. This includes checking out basic literature about (F)RP as well as domain modelling to get a better understanding, when this paradigm makes sense to use, as well as looking into concrete implementation of (F)RP libraries.

Btrfs quotas improvements

an idea by winddss

The problem with quotas is that the feature itself isn't yet mature. At least until very recently, and possibly still, quotas couldn't be depended upon to work correctly (various not entirely uncommon corner-cases would trigger negative numbers, etc), and even when they do work correctly, they simply don't scale well in combination with balance, check, etc -- that 10X difference isn't uncommon. Understanding the code in Btrfs quotas, give a analysis & improvement.

Brainstorming about Continuous Delivery in SLE

a project by pgeorgiadis

Hackweek is here! I think this is the best week of the year to sit down altogether and exchange ideas and suggestions. The main topic is Automation. The goal is that many of these ideas might help various teams within SUSE to engage their business reasons better in defining key expectations and improve the quality of our software products. No fear of change -- the aim is to propose a modern pipeline in a less-invasive manner. Everybody has an idea, everybody has a voice! Brainstorming together can be useful to many different roles, including testers, analysts and developers. Let's have a chit-chat and write down some of those; Hopefully we will come up with plenty of tips on how to organise testing activities better. > Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is a progress. Working together is a success. - Henry Ford

SUSE Manager / Salt integration revisited

a project by j_renner

There is a number of possible improvements to the architecture of SUSE Manager / Salt integration that should be investigated in order to improve the reliability and scalability of the backend: 1. Actions are currently scheduled in the minions using the schedule module of Salt. This brings problems with reliability as for instance a minion can be down at the specified schedule time which leads to actions not being executed. Scalability can be an issue as actions being scheduled for many minions might return results to the server at the same time. Instead it might be better to keep control over scheduled actions on the server to allow batching of actions as well as downtimes of minions or even the server. There is a work in progress branch to get started.
