[From the archives] Testing In the Pub Episode 3 – Mobile Testing

Welcome back to Testing In the Pub. Due to some weirdness with iTunes, it seems all our old episodes before episode 7 have disappeared. But here at the pub we look forward, and the positive is that we can now start some [From the archives] posts 🙂

So here’s the first – it’s about mobile testing. In this episode we talk about mobile software testing and touch upon a number of the key topics including:

  • Tools.
  • Techniques.
  • Fragmentation and selecting devices.
  • What makes mobile testing different.

Hope you find it useful and I hope you can listen via iTunes. But don’t forget, we’re also on this site, via our RSS feed and on YouTube.
