      Case Study

      In this age of a variety of cloud-based-services for virtual Mobile Test Labs, building a real-(mobile)-device lab for Test Automation is NOT a common thing – it is difficult, high maintenance, expensive! Yet, I had to do it!

      Attend this talk to understand the Why, What and How I built my own MAD-LAB (Mobile Automation Devices LAB). The discussion will include –

      • Understanding the context,
      • Why no cloud-based solution worked for me,
      • The automation strategy for Android / iOS / Web platform,
      • The tech-stack (cucumber-jvm / Appium), and,
      • The core implementation to build your own MAD-LAB! (already open-sourced)
      • How this results in Continuous Delivery (CD)
