Say Goodbye to Test Flakiness and Welcome AI into Open Source Mobile Testing

Mobile automation testing, especially if open source (i.e best of breed – Appium), can be frustrating at times, as it comes with quite a few common challenges: complex environments & setup processes, constantly maintaining locator strategies, struggling with team collaboration, tiresome iOS dependencies, trying to avoid fragility and flakiness within your tests, lack of visibility into test results, and so much more...
In this talk we’ll deep dive into each of these obstacles and discuss how Agile methods & advanced tools that will leverage your open source mobile testing with the power of AI (using page object model, nested tests, AI tools for self healing and adaptive waits, shareable repositories for collaboration, built-in reporting, and more!). We’ll demonstrate live how to easily plug & play any physical Android/iOS mobile device (or use emulators/simulators/device farms), using any operating system of our choice (even iOS on Windows!), and start creating right away stable Appium mobile tests that you can share with your entire team!
You will be able to takeaway from this talk actionable steps to scale your mobile testing experience to new heights, whilst maintaining your existing usage of best-in-class open source solutions.
