Full Day Class: De-Mystifying Mobile Application Testing

As mobile devices, tools, operating systems, and web technologies rapidly evolve, testers must quickly adapt their thinking in this changing domain. Testers often struggle to find important vulnerabilities and bugs in mobile applications due to lack of guidance, experience, and the right resources. However, mobile testing is NOT complicated.

In this class, you will learn how to get started with mobile testing, or if you are already doing mobile testing, you will learn new testing approaches, tools and different trends to help you do your job better within the mobile ecosystem. This class will have multiple hands-on exercises, live demos and screenshots for attendees to better relate to the class topics. Included in the class is a hands-on paired testing session on a real live mobile application using Session Based Exploratory Testing (SBTM). You’ll leave this class feeling re-assured that the concepts, approaches and strategies testers use when testing other applications can be applied to mobile as well.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the basics of the mobile ecosystem
  • Learn how to set up a mobile testing process quickly
  • Gain insight to different testing approaches to get quick feedback on the mobile application
  • Experience session based exploratory testing in mobile
