From Prototype to Product: Building a VR Testing Effort

Moving from application and web-based testing to drivers and embedded software was always going to present challenges and opportunities for learning. That was one of the drivers behind my decision to take up a new role. However, arriving for my first day I was introduced to a team and a product that was completely unexpected; wireless VR.

Virtual reality is still a growing technology space and, at the time, information and testing approaches in the public space were scarce. As the first tester to join the R&D team working on a prototype adapter there was a lot of room to move when it came to implementing test practices.

In this talk, I'll take the audience on a testing journey from starting on a prototype product with no customer to having a commercially released product in the market. While testing virtual reality hardware can be different to a lot of testing that is discussed in the public domain, there are also many aspects of testing that remain true, regardless of the context. In exploring my experience of helping to grow the testing effort as the product matured I hope to highlight some of the differences as well as how past experiences can be brought to bear in a new context.
