If you are using Selenium as your test automation solution and you are testing web applications; there is a good chance that your company also has at least one mobile application. The common sense tells us that Selenium cannot be used for native apps for mobile, but with the times changing you’re probably asking yourself if you can at least use your Selenium skills with mobile test automation as well; the answer is a big “yes”.Beyond any doubt, whether you establish a solid mobile test automation framework yourself or someone does it for you, it will bring many benefits. Some of the most critical ones include: a powerful foundation to cope with the mobile testing challenges and a systematic approach to shorten the time-to-market delivery by supporting the quality of your mobile products in preliminary stages.My session mainly focuses on the challenges of mobile test automation (device variety, platform/OS diversity, operator/carrier issues, choice of native vs. HTML 5, emulator vs. real device testing and etc.) and it will guide attendees to practically utilise the solutions as Appium & Selendroid based on their experience on Selenium.
