11 successful years of Moodle & Google Summer of Code 2017 #gsoc17

Successfully completed with improving the Moodle Mobile App testing process

Google Summer of Code 2017 – the global program to bring out more student developers has given a star to Moodle. In May 2017, Moodle Mobile team leader, Juan Leyva selected Diwakar Moturu to work on a project titled “Improve End-To-End Testing in the Mobile App.”

Last week, Diwakar successfully completed the Google Summer of Code project under the mentorship of Juan leyva – Moodle Mobile app team leader. The project is all about improving the Moodle mobile app testing process during development and before each new release.

After the successful completion of the project, Juan Leyva – Mentor of Diwakar Moturu for this project said:

Thanks to Diwakar’s work we have now a complete set of automatic tests that will notify us if we accidentally introduced regressions in the code. This means that we have new tools to guarantee that new versions of the mobile app are 100% stable.

During the project duration, Diwakar kept his progress in his journal to reflect the lifetime of the project.

The final product delivered upon the successful completion of the project,  is available at – https://github.com/moodlehq/moodlemobile2/pull/1126
