Interested in making the Sugar 5.5 Release the best ever?  Sign up to volunteer for TestFest!

What is TestFest?

A collection of end-users, developers, and SugarCRM employees who work closely together to validate new features and bug fixes in Sugar components that are important to their business.

When is TestFest?

TestFest is tentatively planned within two (2) weeks after the release of SugarCRM 5.5 Beta 2. Beta 2 should be released in the first week of September 2009. I will be in contact with you (the volunteer) as the dates begin to solidify.

Why TestFest?

Users, developers, and partners like YOU have made it clear to us that you want quality to be paramount. We have stepped up our internal testing, revamped the release process, and now are looking for your help to make SugarCRM 5.5 the best it can possibly be.

How does TestFest work?

I will be will be the main point of contact and coordination. I will ensure that various volunteers are not duplicating work while testing and ensure that objectives to cover various tests cases are executed.

You (the tester) will test various features/bug fixes in a particular component of Sugar. Additionally you will be testing on your platform and testing functionality that is critical to your business. Bugs will be submitted through the common channels. You will be given priority access to SugarCRM engineers if necessary when testing 5.5 Beta.

The best way to help *right now* is to help sign up volunteers by spreading the word and recruiting additional testers.

Please let me know if you are willing to help with TestFest.  You can comment here in the blog or in the forums.  I will contact you!
