We are pleased to include a panel discussion again this year.
The topic for our panel is "Mobile Testing Strategy":
Given the amount of mobile platforms and devices, and the speed of development in this area, how can we ensure that our applications are tested in a representative manner? What kinds of projects are suited to a certain strategy, or what strategies must be avoided by some projects? We've chosen the panel members so that they represent some of the options available for mobile testing - using open device labs, crowd sourcing, cloud testing and inhouse testing.
- Dr. Frank Simon from BlueCarat - Moderator
- Jay Meißner from Adobe and Open Device Labs
- Chris Addis from SOASTA
- Marcus Schauber from DB Systel GmbH
- Georg Hansbauer from Testbirds GmbH
There will be an opportunity during registration to enter questions for the panel, and, of course, plenty of time during the discussion.
