As Android Developers, we know the importance of cross-device testing. We, also, understand we can't solely rely on Android Emulators, either. Between different screen sizes, operating system versions, and even brands, testing on Android is difficult.
Luckily, there are solutions out there that allow you to test on real devices. AWS Device Farm, Visual Studio App Center, and Sauce Labs all provide services for testing on actual devices in the cloud!... for a price.
What if you didn't have money, but had a couple of phones laying around? Could you build your own, personal device farm? The answer is "yes" with OpenSTF, an open source web application for controlling and managing smartphones.
In this presentation, we'll learn more about OpenSFT and explore its various features.
