Top Practices for Successful Mobile Test Automation

Mobile apps bring a new set of challenges to testing—fast-paced development cycles with multiple releases per week, multiple app technologies and development platforms to support, dozens of devices and form factors, and additional pressure from enterprise and consumers who are less than patient with low quality apps. And with these new challenges comes a new set of mistakes testers can make! Fred Beringer works with dozens of mobile test teams to help them avoid common traps when building test automation for mobile apps. Fred shares some useful best practices, starting with mobile test automation. He explains what and where to automate, how to build testability into a mobile app, how to handle unreliable back-end calls and different device performance, and how to automate the automation. Fred shares real customer stories and shows how small changes in process can make mobile apps ten times more reliable.
