Automation for Mobile Apps using Appium

  • Apr 25, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

As promised in the last meetup we bring you the the mobile themed event.

Join us for an evening with Jonathan Lipps to talk about Appium.

He has been making things out of code as long as he can remember.  He currently works as a Senior Software Developer for Sauce Labs, which enables him to write code for various open-source projects, like Appium (for which he's an architect and lead contributor). Jonathan has worked as a programmer in the startup world on and off for over a decade, but is also passionate about academic discussion. Jonathan has master's degrees in philosophy and linguistics, from Stanford and Oxford respectively. Living in San Francisco, he's an avid homebrewer, rock climber, and writer on topics he considers vital, like the relationship of technology to what it means to be human.

About Appium:
Appium is is a Node.js server that automates native and hybrid mobile applications (both iOS and Android). Appium's philosophy dictates that apps should not be modified in order to be automated, and that you should be able to write your test code in any language or framework. The result is a Selenium WebDriver server that speaks mobile like a native. Appium runs on real devices and emulators and is completely open source, making it a wonderfully friendly way to get started with mobile test automation. In this talk I will outline the principles that inform Appium's design, talk about Appium in the space of other mobile automation frameworks, and introduce the architecture that makes the magic happen. Finally, I'll dig into the code for a simple test of a brand-new mobile app, and demonstrate Appium running this test on iPhone and Android.



Event starts at 6:30 PM. We have half an hour for socializing and the talk begins at 7PM.

We'll have food and drinks served for the group.
