E-UNI hosts lecture on Bug Hunting and QA featuring CCP developers

ECAID ShipEve University is pleased to announce a very special event featuring two CCP developers on the podium. On February 13th at 18:00 EVE time, E-UNI will be hosting this lecture which will be covering some basics about quality assurance practices for EVE, and how players can help CCP to fix bugs and improve the game.

It is a privilege to have CCP speak directly to players like this, and we are very proud to be able to bring this unique event to the UNI and to the EVE community. As such this lecture will be open to all EVE University members, alumni, friends as well as all other interested parties – as long as they are not part of a hostile organization.

The lecture will run approximately 2.5 to 3 hours, with breaks at two points, depending on how many questions are asked.

The lecture will include a general overview of software bugs, followed by presentations by guest speakers CCP Oneiromancer and CCP Konflikt on CCP Quality Assurance and the role of Bug Hunters in identifying and eliminating defects, respectively.

Topics covered:

  • What is a bug?
  • Types of bugs
  • QA and Bugs
  • Handling bugs
  • Patching code
  • Handling bugs – Obvious and otherwise
  • Presentations by CCP Oneiromancer and CCP Konflikt
