W6 Testing the Internet of Things
Jason Arbon,
Wed, 09/30/2015 - 11:30am

The Internet of Things (IoT) is here, and it brings new testing problems, complexity, and, in Jason Arbon’s opinion, a bit more fun. Tiny computers are embedded in everything from light bulbs and shoes to baby diapers. The tiny devices are attached to cattle, humans, cars, and trash cans. The number of IoT devices is set to explode into the tens of billions in the next few years. Consumers expect all these devices to simply work—and work well—with each other. It is easy to test a web app with a mouse and keyboard, or to test a mobile app with a few swipes, but IoT demands that testers determine how to vary the temperature, generate good and bad golf swings, and verify that this device plays well with all those other devices. The topics of security and privacy are more important than ever in this IoT world. Join Jason for a glimpse into the emerging and fun world of IoT testing.

To complement and complete your device test pool, Tom discusses when to use your own devices versus a remote device pool—even thousands of miles away from your development team. Learn how mobile app developers and test teams have made the transition from manual testing to automation. Leave convinced and ready with the resources and steps to integrate continuous automated testing into your mobile development process.
