Test Driven Android

There are few topics hotter these days than Mobile Software Development. It seems like every company is rushing to release their own Mobile App, but when it comes to building the actual software it turns out that traditional tools cannot easily be applied to this domain.  Many developers have found out the hard way that it is very difficult to test drive the application, and some even state that it is impossible.  Additionally, traditional testing tools are unable to automate the application in the emulator or on the device, with the consequence that testers are often left with a manual test script approach. 

Join Cheezy and Christin as they take both developers and testers through an all-day Agile exploration of what it takes to deliver high quality Mobile Apps.

Developers will learn the art of test driving an Android application.  Testers will learn how to perform Exploratory Testing on the Mobile Application while the developer is crafting the code.  Both will learn how to collaborate and specify the behavior of the system in acceptance tests and automate the tests using Cucumber.

Following specialized introductions for developers and testers, this workshop will be conducted as a series of one hour, focused sprints where the participants will work through a prioritized backlog and your instructors will play the role of product owner.  Testers will begin by automating the acceptance tests, building an outer loop of functional tests.  While the automation proceeds, the developers will begin test driving the functionality making an inner loop of tests that drive their design.  As the acceptance tests begin to pass, the testers will begin executing their ET charters attempting to reveal unforeseen defects while the code is still being crafted.  Acting as a tightly collaborative development team, the developers and testers will learn how to work together to ensure that the right story is built in the right way.

Besides, it's live coding folks - what could possibly go wrong?
