Last week I spoke at the 6th world conference on software quality (wcsq6). I gave a presentation on mobile testing. Baseline of the story is that organizations benefit from testers that know how to do technical testing, (Mobile testing comes with technical challenges), and that can guide the organization during the development process.
Using a extensive mind map, I explained some of the design considerations that need to be made during the app development. The choices to be made are driven by the business goal that the organization has with going mobile. And both of these drive the tests that need to be performed.
Beside all the content that I presented, there is an underlying message: testers, get involved in development.
You can see the slides and mind map in my previous post on mobile testing.
