Submitted by Sukesh Soman (@sukeshsoman) on Oct 21, 2014

Section: Versioning - full talks Technical level: Intermediate Status: Confirmed & Scheduled


Demonstrate the benefits of a mobile test strategy, a continuous integration tool and how to use an app test automation framework


Lot of developers & organizations run into issues when they start releasing updates for their apps. This talk will open them to the world of continuous integration, test automation, how to start & benefits.

The CI & Test Automation framework is one which we have found increasingly useful within our organization as there are constant updates to the apps based on customer requirements and the developer was loosing focus on his primary job - development. This completely Open Source based framework, allows the developer to concentrate on development and leave the orchestration of other tasks to a well defined process.

The demos will show case a continuous integration tool being used to control the build/test/provision/deploy phases of a mobile app, along with an appropriate reporting framework. It will also cover behavior driven testing/development and its benefits.

    Thanks Geo.

    I hope to address 3 major issues

    1. Automate tasks that eat into the developer’s time, there by letting them concentrate on development
    2. Ensure consistency across versions
    3. Provide the ability to test across OS versions & platforms in an efficient way
