Metaverse and Testing
We are into the 3rd month of the year (March). While we are witnessing a war in Europe and we all are distressed from the havoc it is creating, we all sincerely wish that in this wonderful world where we are all social animals why on the earth, do we need a war? We wish that this gruesome war ends, and better sense prevails soon.
We are in the age of Metaverse. We are finding means to interact and socialize over the internet, over virtual worlds. We are making friends and creating a boundary less world. Let us remind the world leaders over the virtual world to stop the war menace asap.
On Metaverse, do we think it will impact our ways of testing for Metaverse?
What exactly is Metaverse?
Here is the definition from Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metaverse)
A metaverse is a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection. In futurism and science fiction, it is often described as a hypothetical iteration of the Internet as a single, universal virtual world that is facilitated by the use of virtual and augmented reality headsets
The internet world of tomorrow would be full of VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) technology. The use of AR and VR has gone beyond just gaming and video industry. Conference platforms, immersive remote working solutions and many other platforms have seen phenomenal rise. Other than Facebook (Meta) which has embraced this to the core almost every other big organization like Amazon, Google, Microsoft have invested heavily into Metaverse. Huge number of jobs are expected to be there in this space.
Would it mean a bonanza for us (Testers) too?
I would say yes, it will lead into a new paradigm. Do we need to think beyond the obvious? I would say yes.
On that note I would like to remind you about the upcoming #ATAGTR2022, the theme for the conference is “Test Beyond the Obvious”. We are inviting everyone to submit their papers for the conference. The call for papers is currently on. You can visit the following URL to know more.
