S13-604: Talk the Talk, Walk the Walk for Mobile Testing Projects

Track: Mobile Application Testing

Mobile testing is being incorporated into our software testing projects. We don’t see longer timelines, on the contrary, not only do we not get more resources for the additional tasks but we’re seeing shorter project schedules because the belief is “it can all be automated.” Not only can mobile tests be more complex but the testers are often inexperienced in testing mobile devices, mobile applications, and mobile websites. Training time must be added to the project schedules or quality is compromised. This presentation will focus on using language with assistance on examples to share with stakeholders to better plan out mobile testing projects and maintain a high level of quality.

Session Takeaways:

  • Attendees will gain inspiration on presenting within their own organizations, the language needed to plan out mobile testing resources within a project timeline.
  • Examples of what testers can use as inspiration to present to their stakeholders as a means of communicating the complexity of a mobile testing project.
  • Mobile testing documentation to showcase the types of tests to be done and how testers can leverage the importance of skilled resources for mobile testing projects which will have a direct impact on and bring real value to their organization.
