Mobile automation: three act tragedy

March 2nd


Stage B


45 minutes


This talk is about challenges you may encounter while trying to set up mobile automation infrastructure yourself. Three main cases are shown in detail: Android mobile automation, iOS mobile automation and issues with real-devices. I’m going to show the mainstream approaches on how to do this as well as enumerate various issues you should be aware of. The main goal is to give a general understanding of how mobile automation differs from desktop automation. This should help to make a decision – whether such infrastructure research should be done inside your company or outsourced to online services.
