Mobile application developers reach beyond the confines of their application when building the user experience. There are many aspects to the device itself that can turn a good app into an exceptional one. It's why so many developers choose to build native or hybrid apps – so they can tap into the capabilities of the device itself for display and functionality improvements, like Location Services and Orientation. But those are the very aspects that make testing mobile apps so complicated. How do you test that your app displays the right localizations when you are always located in the same place? Using device properties as part of your automated testing can solve complications. Nikhil addresses the challenges of mobile testing, how to use Android device properties to mock your tests and creative techniques for incorporating those properties into your automated testing suite.
Prior to SmartBear, Nikhil served Digité, a leading provider of collaborative enterprise software and solutions for Agile application lifecycle management, in various roles including Senior Software Executive. There, he gained critical insight into the development, testing and application life cycle management market as well as worked with a variety of clients, from Fortune 500 customers to smaller accounts.
