We are very happy to introduce Raj Subramanian, Senior UI Automation Engineer at CSG International and this full day workshop.
If you are looking to get into mobile testing or learn all the things you would need to be better at it, this is your chance.
Why this workshop?
We come across numerous bugs related to mobile applications. Looking at these bugs, we can find patterns in them in terms of how different types of testing approaches helps to find different type of defects. Anyone could start doing mobile testing if they understand some basic concepts involved in it. Mobile Testing is NOT complicated.
Also,we often hear testers say mobile testing entails a totally different thought process from other types of testing, and they believe they have to take extra courses and get certifications to be proficient in it. There are even testers who think they are not qualified to do mobile testing, although they have been testing other applications for more than a decade and have gained a lot of experience during those years. This workshop will help to re-assure testers that, the concepts, approaches and strategies testers use when testing other applications can be applied to mobile as well.
