Presentation: "The Mobile Testing Challenge: Why Mobile Apps Need Real-World Testing Coverage and How Crowdsourcing Can Help"
Time: Friday 14:00 - 15:00
Location: Westminster Suite
- Hardware/Software platform - There are a handful of web browsers and desktop operating systems, but there are literally hundreds of different devices from a large number of manufacturers. How do you test on all of these client platforms?
- Different Carriers - Every carrier does things in a different way, and a large number of issues (much more than you'd think) are introduced moving from Orange to T-Mobile to Vodafone - how do you test on all of these carriers?
- Location - As any mobile phone user knows, coverage can be very patchy and frequently expensive. How do you ensure that your app isn't gobbling bandwidth, failing when the network drops, and costing consumers a lot of money?
In this presentation, Doron will discuss these challenges in more detail, and describe several ways which provide effective testing for mobile applications as well as the pitfalls in each of these approaches
