Talk Abstract:
No matter how many devices, platforms or screen-sizes you test your mobile app on, your testing may still not be enough. In this era of ever increasing mobile devices and varied platforms, this is bound to happen unless you have a test plan tailored for the mobile world. The intent of this talk is to brace ourselves for this challenge and envision a test strategy for mobile that covers these widespread avenues.
