Emulation Tools for Sustainable Software Development: Simulating Real-World Usage Scenarios at KDE-Eco

Feb 2, 2024, 3:45 PM
Conference talks


Mr Rudraksh Karpe


In this talk, I will demonstrate how emulation tools can improve your efficiency and help you meet quality standards & how KDE eco is leveraging them. Emulation tools simulate user actions on a computer and can be used for a variety of tasks, including testing software and automating repetitive tasks.

Using emulation tools such as xdotool, actiona, and KDE Eco Tester, I will demonstrate how to automate the creation of usage scenarios, as well as share my experience contributing to work done preparing the KDE applications Kate and Gcompris for Blue Angel Eco Certification. You will learn how these tools can help you save time and effort, and ensure that your software meets eco-friendliness and quality standards.

While emulation tools can be incredibly helpful, they also have their drawbacks. They may not always accurately simulate real-world scenarios and can be complex to set up and use. However, with the right approach, they can be a valuable asset for developers, testers, and anyone interested in sustainable and energy-efficient software. I will provide solutions to these challenges based on my experience working with these tools.


I am a final year CS undergrad and a Season of KDE 2023 mentee worked under mentorship of Joseph P. De Veaugh-Geiss. My passion for sustainable software development has led me to contribute to the Blue Angel Certification Preparation for KDE applications project. Through my journey in the KDE community, I have gained valuable experience and insights into open-source development and the importance of community
