A primer on testing and test automation for mobile phone applications

Mobile phones are ubiquitous and, since 2007, millions of us have changed our habits to use applications on our smartphones. We can find & download new applications immediately and even discard them a few minutes later. Some of us are involved in creating and testing these applications. This keynote provides a primer on ways to test mobile phone applications, both interactively and using test automation. We will cover the full software lifecycle; from creation to user-feedback for installed & web-based mobile applications.

The mobile apps world continues to evolve rapidly so join us to learn more about the testing challenges & practices for your mobile app world.

About Julian Harty

Julian has been actively involved in the software testing world since 1999 when he realised testing was one way to help deliver better software for the ultimate users.

He wrote the first book on test automation for smartphone applications. And he has published articles, given tutorials and classes, globally, on testing & test automation. He�s also one of the editors, and the main author for the testing sections, for the popular Don�t Panic Mobile Developers Guide to the Galaxy book. The 10th edition was launched in February 2012. He�s currently writing the next book on testing and test automation for mobile phone apps. It�s a collaborative effort where hundreds of people have the opportunity to provide feedback and content.
