A Year In Mobile – Richard Bradshaw

A Year In Mobile – Richard Bradshaw


I will be sharing my experiences of testing on mobile devices. A year ago, I took a gig, solely focused on testing native mobile applications. At the time, I saw others talking about how mobile testing was different, purposely distinguishing it from other types of testing. My view then was, it’s just testing where the context is mobile. But what is my view now? We will explore what I have learnt testing on mobile, from new techniques to how I have utilised automation in this context.

Richard is a friendly tester with a real passion for testing. He is very active in the testing community and hosted the very popular meetup in Nottingham called #NottsTest. Richard is also a founding member and co-organiser of the Midlands Exploratory Workshop on Testing (#MEWT).

Richard is currently working as an Independent Tester after having set up Friendly Testing Limited in 2014. He has been testing for over 8 years now.

Richard is a big advocate of automation, but not the silver bullet type, the type that really supports testing and testers. He is very technically minded and encourages the use of tools.

He considers himself a student of testing and is always looking for new ideas and inspiration to improve his testing skills.
