Title: Mobile Test Automation with Selenium and Appium
The last few years have seen Selenium become a de facto open source standard for testing desktop and mobile websites, and the search for a tool that allows the same flexibility with mobile applications is well underway. Appium provides a tool that fills that gap. This talk will cover some selenium basics (what is selenium, why do I care?) and use that knowledge to demonstrate how you can use selenium-like scripts to automate your mobile applications on iOS and Android. We'll cover phone gap and titanium apps, fully native apps, web views, and even a little mobile web automation. Finally, we'll talk about the future of the project and do some comparison with other testing tools.
