Mawaheb, wonderful to hear from you :-) Glad your wanting to help be a 
part of ubuntu. There are many different ways to get involved in QA. 
You've come during a busy week, so your timing is great :-)

This week is a cadence week. Take a look at the wiki page below to give 
you a better idea on what that means, but basically we'll be testing 
several packages and the images this week together as a team. We've 
chosen nautilus, empathy, alsa, and the iso images as part of our 
testing for this week.


In addition, I'm hosting two sessions where we'll all gather on 
#ubuntu-quality to do our cadence testing. The first was today, which 
you missed :-(. However, the other is Thursday at 1400-1500 UTC on 
#ubuntu-quality on freenode. We'll be around running through our cadence 
tests and helping each other out. Try and participate and submit results 
for the cadence testing -- there's a great tutorial here: 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/Cadence/Walkthrough. Of course the 
session on Thursday will also help you get started.

As to what else we do, well, these pages should give you a better idea 
on what's out there:


We've been exploring automated testing this cycle with autopilot, and 
lots of resources to get you started there as well. Briefly, autopilot 
is a python framework for writing automated GUI testcases. Since your 
studying computer science you might enjoy coding testcases as much as 
running them :-)

Finally, I'd encourage you to follow @ubuntutesting, and ubuntuqa on g+ 
to get plugged into what's going on. Your already on the mailing list, 
so that's great. We also have a facebook group for helping to connect 
with each other if your on that social network ;-)

Let us know what I can do to help as you get started. Feel free to reach 
out on this list or #ubuntu-quality on freenode at any time.
