Hands Free Mobile UI Testing

Testing your mobile app against the sea of mobile devices can be daunting. Just testing with the popular devices of the last few years can be cumbersome and expensive. Not to mention the wear and tear on your thumbs with all that tapping and swiping. Wouldn't it be great if you could apply the same skills and practices you've honed implementing unit testing of your app logic to the testing of your UI? I've got great news, you can! We'll explore how you can get started automating all that tapping and swiping today in your existing mobile apps and plan for it moving forward. We'll also see how those tests can be applied to online services with thousands of devices waiting to run your app.

Build mobile apps for iOS, Android, and Windows using JavaScript

Mobile application development does not need to be difficult for us Web Developers. No longer do we need to learn a whole slew of new programming languages to create a mobile application. We can use our existing skills and create mobile applications with Html, JavaScript, and CSS. Then deploy to Android and iOS devices using a single code base that looks, feels, and performs like a native mobile application.

Between Cordova, Ionic, and Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova you won't have to worry about the infrastructure setup or making the UI look, feel and perform correctly on the slew different Apple and Android devices that your users will have. You will be able to focus on your business logic and greatly reduce your time to market.

In this talk we will dive into what it takes to get started, look at the features of the Ionic framework and finish off by creating a sample application with the Ionic framework. You will walk away from this talk with all of the tools that you need to deliver your first mobile application.
