Delivering high quality applications in an agile world is becoming more complex and challenging because of the changes the web and mobile are undergoing. Web testing continues to get much more difficult due to the increased use of open technologies and web components in apps; lengthening the approval processes for plugins; and Chrome, Mozilla and Edge browsers blocking specific APIs. On the mobile front, Apple, Google and Microsoft are making it easier for developers to build cross-platform apps, resulting in more to test in less time. With releases such as Windows 10, the lines between desktop and mobile continue to blur. Nikhil Kaul presents an overview of recent technological trends and discusses why they necessitate an alteration in existing agile testing practices. He shares how the transition to technologies like React and React Native is causing the worlds of mobile and web testing to collide.
