UI Testing for Your MonoTouch Apps

UI testing on mobile applications presents many of the same challenges we see in other UI technologies: dealing with element locators, handling dynamic content, and creating maintainable tests. Of course, there’s a number of additional challenges on any mobile platform such as differing UItechnologies, gestures, and oh so many more!

In this session you’ll learn approaches for creating maintainable, accurate, and flexible tests for your MonoTouch app.

    I learned several things at the meetup that will likely prove valuable at my job. However, part of the reason why I went out of my way to attend the meetup was to meet other developers. I have a really weak tech network and I guess I was hoping that the event would be structured in a way that would push sometimes-reticent folks like myself to introduce themselves to others who are also professional MonoTouch developers. I guess I can't expect an event to hold my hand socially, but even something as simple as a quick round of introductions would have given me enough reason to approach someone afterward to chew the fat with.

    One small critique: presenters should make sure they have their IDEs set to a large enough font size that it can be read from the audience.

    Jim Holmes was a solid speaker. His two co-presenters were also extremely knowledgable. It felt good to be listening to folks who clearly knew what was up.

      Thanks for the feedback Jason, glad you found the meeting useful! We definitely hope to have some meetings in the future that are a bit more open to allow for more member interaction. If you have anything in particular you'd like to see, don't hesitate to send me an email! Also, if you haven't responded to the two polls we added recently, that would be very helpful as well.

      Jason, Thanks for the feedback, it really is useful to help us organize events in the future. Depending on the size of the group, we do try to go for a drink afterwards. We're also trying to get more sponsors for food, hopefully that provides an opportunity to get some conversations going. Also check out the the app Geert mentioned, I am also working on something similar to make it easier to connect with the people. It's early days, but feel free to checkout­. Finally, we will both be at the next event, please come over and say hi, we'd love meet you and find out more about what you are working on. Thanks again for the feedback.
