We have closed submissions for Fragments Conf, Bangalore edition which will be held on 30 March. If you wish to submit a proposal for the conference, make a submission here.
Fragments is a conference on mobile engineering, including:
- State of platforms/OS
- Engineering approaches and paradigms
In 2019, Fragments is a traveling conference with editions in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, and potentially Hyderabad and Kochi (in the second half of 2019).
Topics for submission:
We seek proposals – for short and long talks, Birds of Feather (BOF) session topics, and workshops + tutorials – on the following topics:
- Deep dive technical talks on Flutter.
- AR Core: practical approaches and the business use cases.
- Reducing app size to below 10MB and how to cater for lower-end phones.
- PWA caching strategies.
- ML Kit (ML Kit | Google Developers).
- On device ML.
- Server-side ML.
- Progressive ML, where the fallback is on-device ML when the device goes offline.
- Functional programming for mobile.
- Coroutines in Kotlin.
- Mobile specific user research.
- Case studies from teams which have switched away from cross platform approaches.
- Use cases for which Native apps work versus use cases where it doesn’t make sense to build Native apps.
- Deep dive talks on performance.
- Optimising for lower-end hardware.
- Future of chatbots for conversations on mobile.
- Automating design to code.

Uphill Battle Of Mobile Visual Regression
In this talk, we will discuss how to approach Visual Testing starting from the lowest, unit test level, all the way up to E2E tests. The main takeaway for the audience will be an insight into how to choose a right Visual Testing tool for the right problem.
There are many types of testing companies need to perform in order to have confidence in their product: security testing, integration testing, system testing, performance testing, and more. Often, mobile developers focus on ensuring that main end-to-end flows of their applications work by relying on frameworks like Appium or Robotium. However, in the mobile domain, visual testing is essential as mobile devices differ drastically in capabilities, display dimensions and even operating systems. Visual regression testing targets specific areas of visual concepts like layouts, responsive design, graphics, and CSS. Because modern mobile applications are built as hybrid and native applications, there is no way to scale this sort of testing using manual resources; hence, visual test automation should be a crucial piece of the testing stack. In this talk, the audience will learn about major visual testing frameworks targeting both responsive web applications and native mobile applications.
