  If you have played Eve for any decent length of time, I'm sure you've run into a bug somewhere. With a game as old as Eve, it's bound to happen at some point. But do you know just what to look for or what to do if you find one? Well, if you don't then this might be just what you're looking for to find out. CCP is giving a guest lecture in conjunction with Eve University about bug hunting. It's open to all, so even if you never were in the Uni, feel free to check it out

  Post from the E Uni website:

"Eve University is pleased to announce a very special event featuring two CCP developers on the podium. On February 13th at 18:00 EVE time, E-UNI will be hosting this lecture which will be covering some basics about quality assurance practices for EVE, and how players can help CCP to fix bugs and improve the game.

It is a privilege to have CCP speak directly to players like this, and we are very proud to be able to bring this unique event to the UNI and to the EVE community. As such this lecture will be open to all EVE University members, alumni, friends as well as all other interested parties – as long as they are not part of a hostile organization.
The lecture will run approximately 2.5 to 3 hours, with breaks at two points, depending on how many questions are asked.
The lecture will include a general overview of software bugs, followed by presentations by guest speakers CCP Oneiromancer and CCP Konflikt on CCP Quality Assurance and the role of Bug Hunters in identifying and eliminating defects, respectively.
Topics covered:
  • What is a bug?
  • Types of bugs
  • QA and Bugs
  • Handling bugs
  • Patching code
  • Handling bugs – Obvious and otherwise
  • Presentations by CCP Oneiromancer and CCP Konflikt
  • Questions and Answers
To attend the lecture, students and guests need to have the Mumble voice client installed. Students need to be registered – while guests will be moved into the appropriate channel by the server admins.
If you have any questions for the CCP developers (in regard to this topic), please send them to Ed’rashtekaresket via forum PM or EVE-Mail (students please post in the class post on the forum), but please note that questions outside the scope of this lecture topic will be disregarded."
