The Association for Software Testing is pleased to announce its ninth annual conference, CAST 2014 “The Art and Science of Testing”, to be held in New York, NY, August 11-13. To some, software testing is an outgrowth of engineering, mathematics and physics, while to others, testing is an exploration of psychology, philosophy or sociology. At CAST 2014, conference speakers will share their stories and experiences surrounding software testing, whether bound by rules and laws of science and experimentation, or expressed through creativity, imagination, and artistry.

Join us this summer for our ninth annual conference in downtown New York City at the beautiful Kimmel Center located next to Washington Square Park August 11-13, as we explore the art and science of testing.

Smartphone mobile app needs smart testers

Smartphone applications are developed with immense creativity and effort. Mobile users demand a sleeker experience with applications compared to desktop users. The mindset of mobile users is very different from web or desktop users. Smartphone apps are used on the move (e.g.: while walking or using a toilet), and mobile devices have a lot to offer through hardware location tracking, gyroscopes and other integrated features. Dhanasekar will show how to tune the tester’s mindset to model test approaches specific to smartphone apps. Smartphone apps focus on speed, size and sleek. Learn how to design tests at the UI level to identify issues beyond the usual functional and non-functional testing. Even if a smartphone app has a sleek UI, users will uninstall the app if it drains their battery, crashes frequently or wastes the user’s data plan. Dhanasekar will explain how he designs mobile tests and what tools he uses to uncover issues hidden under mobile UI.
