Course Outline – Testing Mobile Apps & Mobile Websites
Are you testing a mobile app or a website on a mobile device? Developed and taught by Karen N. Johnson, this one-day hands-on class looks at both contexts: testing mobile apps and testing websites on mobile devices. Karen’s background and teaching on mobile testing comes from hands-on project experiences and she shares her insights and tips for testing throughout the day.
Need Mobile Experience?
Class exercises are hands-on through actual devices, so bring your own mobile device. Additionally we may use other formats for testing so bring a laptop. This class welcomes discussion of mobile experiences – this class is not a lecture but an active roundtable of mobile testing.
Need a mobile strategy?
If you need to develop a mobile strategy, especially a strategy that can evolve over time or as fast as the mobile market changes, this class looks at user, country, and device statistics as a way to align and continue to align your mobile testing strategy. Karen discusses sources for mobile statistics and how to keep watch on the evolving mobile market so you can continue to adapt your strategy.
