Using the open source Tbot project for automation and testing

{{#ev:youtube|Jl3sUq2WwcY||right|BeagleLogic}}

Use the open source tbot project to automate tasks for beaglebone hardware and create generic (that can run in any board) and specific testcases.
why tbot? tbot is a testing/automation tool and open source project written in python
its easy to understand and easy to learn and with flexibility that allows a developer to do a lot of things

Experience and approach

I contributed to tbot open source project (https://github.com/Rahix/tbot) so i have experience working with tbot and also using it to automate tasks(building tasks, cross-compiling tasks, etc) and to make testcases to check if everything works in the board. Also i like to learn many things so i have taken many courses, you can check it here: https://platzi.com/@demonpo/

Contingency

Im in contact with tbot maintainer and i can talk with him if i need some help.

Benefit

The project will help to beagleBoard community to automate repetitive and tedious work between the board and the host computer. Also they will have full set of testcases generic (can run in any beagleBone Board) to run (with tbot) to test if everything is okay in their beaglebones boards.
