Test Automation Frameworks for Mobile: XCUI test (iOS) image
Talk Description

Web automation frameworks have evolved over time and have become very mature over the years. But the same is not true for mobile apps. 

Did you want to kick start your journey into mobile test automation? Or have you found it harder to choose the right one for your team? Let's get started!

Why these 4? The frameworks I have chosen have been used in high profile projects that I’ve worked on with so many challenges. So I’m speaking from real experience, rather than just the theory behind it.

Also, all 4 frameworks I’ll be showcasing are well-documented and well-supported open-source code-based solutions, something that you can use in a software development team right away without any blockers (like money, approvals, etc).

Framework #2: XCUI test (iOS)

We will be using the same workflow for all the test framework demos. We will write a UI test using XCUI tests for the chosen workflow.

XCUI testing is the native UI testing framework that comes out of the box and is supported by Apple. Test can be written and managed within xcode itself which provides you greater control over the app code itself. Tests are written using Swift.

What you’ll learn

By the end of this talk, you'll be able to:

  • What does it take to write an XCUI Test based UI test for iOS?
  • In what scenarios should you use XCUI Test?
  • When not to use XCUI Test?
  • What type of teams can benefit in choosing a framework like XCUI Test?
  • What level of skill set is required to write a test using XCUI Test (so you can go and prep yourself for it).

Staff Quality Coach, Culture Amp

I’m Jas from Melbourne. I currently work at Culture Amp as a Staff Quality Coach, specialising in test automation and testability. I have worked in the mobile app development space for almost a decade, where I saw mobile devices and operating systems get better and better by the day. My fascination towards mobile devices made me start my professional career as a mobile app developer. But my quest to build better apps and write code that is much more testable lead me to transition into a test automation engineer specialising in mobile. Since then, I’ve gradually explored a wide variety of test automation frameworks and have consulted for some of the leading software teams in Australia to build efficient test automation suites for both mobile and web apps. I have spoken about my test automation journey in a variety of testing conferences like the Ministry of Testing’s Testbashes, Automation Guild (by TestGuild) and Saucelabs’ Saucecon. I now work at Culture Amp alongside the legendary Anne-Marie Charrett helping build a passionate quality enablement team. I currently work with test automation frameworks (functionality, contract and load) for APIs, web apps, micro-services and event sourced systems. Latest obsession… Observability within test frameworks.
