BYOT – Bring Your Own Testautomation

Mobile Quality Night Vienna - Adventures in QAWhen I first read BYOT – Bring Your Own Testautomation, I thought: What the hell is that? However, after I talked to Rudolf Groetz, I finally got the idea behind this new conference format. Rudolf is the founder and organizer of the Vienna Mobile Quality Crew, a mobile quality focused user group. Besides the Vienna Mobile Quality Crew, there are other mobile user groups from different locations within Europe. There are mobile user groups in the following cities or areas:

However, lets get back to the initial topic. Rudolf, is also the organizer of the Mobile Quality Night which tool place the first time last year in October 2014. The first edition of the Mobile Quality Night was a great success and Rudolf is currently planning the second edition of the event again in October 2015 (08. Oct. 2015).

The next Mobile Quality Night will start with a 30 minute talk with the topic “Architecture of Mobile Test Automation”. This talk will cover the general architecture of mobile test automation and test automation tools. Furthermore, the talk will provide an overview of the different test automation approaches that are available.

After this talk the new  BYOT (german) format will continue.  In the BYOT format, mobile test automation experts can present a tool of their choice in a 5 minute lightning talk. Goal of this talk is to show the architecture of the test tool as well as the pros and cons.

If you are a mobile test automation expert in one of the following tools

  • Appium
  • Selendroid
  • Robotium
  • Espresso
  • KIF
  • Calabash
  • Sikuli

you should consider to submit the call for paper to be at the Mobile Quality Night in October. In total there will be 6 lightning talks. After the lightning talks there will be a panel discussion about test automation.

I highly recommend to save the date 08. October 2015! The event will take place in Vienna, which is a lovely city and worth a travel.

Happy Testing!
