Full Course Outline
This full-day course is an introductory ‘crash course’ to Mobile application testing. It provides an excellent introduction to mobile testing, as well as the most relevant techniques and terminology in this domain. This course is aimed at professionals in the area of mobile application testing. It focuses on techniques and methods for testing mobile applications. The course is largely OS-independent and techniques taught here can be applied to all types of mobile applications. It also focuses on tests specific to mobile applications as opposed to generic testing principles and techniques. In addition to the above this course provides semi hands-on testing using buggy applications, and if the time allows, a short live demo on how to use automatic tools for testing mobile apps will be shown. Participants may want to bring their own laptops (Windows or Mac) and preferably Android devices for the exercises – please be in contact with the training center to get more information on how to make your laptop ready in advance.
