Mobile Untethered: Lessons Learned without the Wires

Are you looking for insight into real-life companies and how “going mobile” has changed the roles for developers and testers in their organizations? Jennifer Bonine and Rick Faulise share strategies that have worked—and not worked—for organizations. What do you, as a developer or tester, need to think about when you move into mobile web and mobile apps? It is important to understand the changes required in your skillset and to keep up to date on what organizations are looking for in their resources as they embark on their mobile strategies. Jennifer and Rick explore the state of mobile technology, focus on the software quality challenges it poses, and offer ways to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of mobile testing. They discuss how to integrate the mobile testing effort into the overall testing process. Together, they offer a focused look at the automation of mobile testing—the needs, the options, and the tools. At the end of the session, join Jennifer and Rick for a live demonstration of a mobile test automation approach.
