CAST 2014 has ended


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.

Mobile Application Testing with Selenium and Appium

One of the most significant changes in software testing over the last decade is the increased usage of automated testing. For mobile, long regression passes can be problematic due to the fatigue of using small devices for extended periods of time and lengthy AppStore review and distribution mechanisms that can slow your ability to fix issues in the field. Until recently, there were no good solutions for automating mobile applications.  Early tools were problematic because they required using a specific programming language, jail-breaking devices, or significant modification of the application under test.  Introducing Appium, a mobile test automation framework that uses the Selenium bindings that many web testers are already familiar with to automate mobile applications. Appium allows you to code in the language you want, uses official automation APIs under-the-hood, and does not require modification to an application. Dan Cuellar, the creator of Appium, demonstrates how to write a basic iOS or Android test with Appium and provides one on one support.
