FOSDEM 2021 : rewards and recognition for attendees who beta-test breakthrough software and provide feedback
February 2021 by Marc Jacob
OW2, the international community dedicated to developing and promoting a code base of open source software for corporate information systems, is inviting FOSDEM attendees to become ReachOut beta testers, try leading edge software from European research projects and SMEs, against monetary rewards, and a Software Ranger certificate to enhance their professional profile.
FOSDEM attendees are well known for their keen interest in software engineering. All they have to do to be included in the beta tester incentive program is to participate in a ReachOut registered beta-testing campaign and return a fully completed questionnaire.
Each campaign manager decides on its own rewards that are detailed in the campaign description. In addition to specific campaign rewards, the ReachOut platform offers all beta testers the opportunity to enter a special ReachOut Super Lottery by the end of 2021.
ReachOut is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 program, coordinated by Fraunhofer FOKUS – the largest organization for applied research in Europe, along with UshareSoft and OW2. ?ReachOut acts as an operational intermediary between software designers and early users. It helps SMEs and research projects to implement their beta testing campaigns through proper software packages, efficient testing scenarios, and customized questionnaires.
The ReachOut Platform is showcased at Fosdem 2021, on February 6-7, 2021, on the OW2 booth.
