Testing Mobile Apps—From All Angles

As the need for testing mobile apps increases, so does the need to understand and apply test practices that cover more than just functional correctness. Randy Rice leads you through techniques for designing the right tests for your mobile applications, whether they are on the device or on a website. Learn how to know which items of functionality are important to test based on relative risk. Randy presents his visual method of how to rank important attributes including usability, compatibility, accessibility, and security, and then how to design tests for them. Randy covers both manual and automated approaches to testing mobile devices. Learn the pros and cons of each test approach. See an array of tools from simulators and emulators to cloud-based testing on real devices. This is an interactive session, so bring your mobile device with you and learn mobile testing by doing it.

In this tutorial we will be performing tests of mobile applications and mobile web sites. To participate fully in the exercises, please bring your own mobile device of any brand and operating system—iOS, Android, or other
