Mobile Testing

Automate Your Way to Sanity in the Chaos of Mobile App Development

Mobile app development and testing are hard. Mobile at scale is even harder. As you scale to the enterprise, automation is the only option. However, many organizations have barely started automating their mobile dev/test efforts. So, how do you actually automate the building, testing, and deploying of hundreds of mobile apps across multiple operating systems and different app stores? Josh Anderson explains that the mobile ecosystem is in its infancy compared to the tools supporting web application development, testing, and deployment. This means that you must get comfortable with alpha versions of open source projects, constantly changing APIs, and some good, old-fashioned software engineering duct tape. Josh takes you through the challenges he and his teams have encountered along the path to automation and explores the direction for those that remain. Take home the lessons Josh and his teams learned so you can more easily pave your own path to mobile automation
