Exploding IoT market could drive opportunities for software testers

We asked Jon Hagar, our guest on Monday’s webinar, to give us a preview of his remarks. Here’s what he had to say. Jon: There is much hype, and there may even be quite a bit of money, around the IoT market.  IoT merges several technology lines, such as Mobile, Cloud, Communication, Big Data, and Embedded software.  Many aspects of IoT will be familiar. There are challenges, to be sure, for testers as the IoT market reveals its full potential. But these are really opportunities for testers who decide to get engaged in the IoT market.  These include:

Mobile Test Automation Value?

In our webinar back in April with @QA_nna, we had so many questions we couldn't answer during the webinar. One question related specifically to mobile test automation value: "How much value can automation add to mobile apps projects? Is it recommended to go for automation in such projects? They are usually of short duration." We'll attempt to address this question here.

Firstly, the primary consideration is the length of the project.

Implementing Mobile Test Automation

In my most recent talk at the mobile dev and test conference in San Diego, I got a chance to sit with Srilu Pinjala from PNSQC. We discussed the topics at the upcoming conference, and the new “Concept Papers”, that is, papers that can be presented outside the normal technical track. We also discussed some of the areas that are hot in the software world, namely mobile, devops, agile and user experience among others, and what kinds of topics would be cool to have at the conference. One topic that sticks in my mind regarding mobile is implementing mobile test automation.

We often work with clients that want to implement a software test automation effort and their immediate objective is “I want to achieve X% test automation”, where X is often 80 or even 90 percent. Now, as mobile testing tools begin to mature and most organizations have mobile apps, the same mindset is emerging. Unfortunately we have the same problems and issues in implementing mobile test automation as we do and did with web-apps. That is, requirements change, and things move fast, especially with agile where we are doing new builds every day or even every hour via continuous integration. So what to do?

Mobile Web Performance Optimization – Can You Recommend Mobile Performance Tools

For those of you that had questions or missed our webinar on Mobile Web Performance Optimization, with Mark Tomlinson and Phil Lew, one of the questions during/after the webinar was: "Can you recommend some good/popular mobile performance testing tools?" And the answer is...
