Introduction to VR Software Testing

A workshop to give you a basic grounding in how to approach this new area of Software Testing.

The first dedicated VR Software Testing workshop is here to show you how to approach this new area.

What is this course about?

This course is an Introduction to VR Software Testing. It's designed to help you into the space and give you confidence in using and testing VR applications. Many people haven't had the opportunity to access these kinds of experiences, so this course enables you to learn all about it, in a guided and fun environment.


Why you should take this course?

If you want to learn about VR Software Testing of course! They keep telling us it's the future, but more importantly it's another realm in the world of Software. The techniques learnt in this space will also help your "out-the-box" thinking in other types of Testing. This course enables you to be ready for a rapidly-growing part of the Software world.


What you will learn?

By the end of the day, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the technical and practical considerations necessary for comfortable VR experiences

  • Track their VR Testing sessions using a variety of approaches

  • Discuss the importance of factors such as UI and how it can adversely affect a User

  • Use Tools to aid VR Testing

  • Analyse Testing sessions and use them to structure VR Testing

  • Perform Paired and Mob VR Testing



Is this course for you?

Are you working in VR?

If yes, then most definitely. It will help you to think about your VR Testing differently, give you the opportunity to talk through what you've learnt and how that can be aided with the course content.


If not, then this course could still be useful for you. It gives you the chance to access VR experiences, learn different approaches and techniques which could help you look at your own Testing in a new light. Also you never know when having that knowledge might aid you in future projects.


I've never used VR, can I still come?

Of course you can!

This course is designed as an introductory course, therefore we cater to those who have no previous experience of the domain but wish to learn about it. We aim to provide a safe space for Testers of all experience levels to come together and learn about this exciting area.

I’ve never been on a course like this, I feel anxious about what it might be like!

We aim to make this workshop a safe and comfortable space for people to learn. We don’t want anyone feeling overwhelmed with information, so we make sure to give people enough breaks between exercises. We want you to feel happy and excited to learn with us. So please, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns. We will always do our utmost to accommodate everyone.
