Mobile Testing – the relation between tests, business goals & design considerations

1,263 views

Published on

Testing Mobile requires technical tests that align with both the business goals, and the design considerations made by development team. Due to the small size of app projects, tester can fulfil an important role in keeping overview, guiding the business and of course executing the right tests. This presentation will explain what can be tested on an app and adds the relation with the initial goals and design considerations. Understanding these relations will enable testers to bridge the gap between other disciplines.
