Mobile Test Automation and the Need for Continuous Quality

Adopting agile practices is a struggle for many mobile app teams. Rapid introduction of new mobile devices and operating systems along with internal time-to-market pressure is pushing teams to discover the set of changes required to embed quality throughout the code-build-test cycle. While the answer sounds simple – automate process, testing, environment provisioning and deployment – in reality this can be hard to achieve.

In this session, Eran Kinsbruner will dive into automating mobile testing. The focus will be on implementing automation that can be executed in parallel on real devices without requiring any manual intervention. We’ll cover the core pillars of a mobile automation framework that work as part of a continuous quality process and offer a template that attendees can apply to their teams.

Session Takeaways:

  • How to choose the right devices to develop and test on
  • Why velocity requires a properly maintained function library
  • Acquire a deeper understanding of object analysis methods
  • Key pillars every mobile test plan should include:
    o Functional coverage testing
    o Mobile environment control
    o Embedding nonfunctional testing elements earlier in the cycle
  • How to stay continuously updated in a fast-changing market
