Panel discussion

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.

Panel members

There will be an opportunity during registration to enter questions for the panel, and, of course, plenty of time during the discussion.
