Do we test our mobile applications as well as we use them?
Arilo Claudio Dias-Neto (UFAM)
Mobile applications have been considered an important technological innovation in our society. However, despite we are great users of mobile applications, are we so good testers? This talk discusses some of the challenges introduced by the mobile platform in software testing activities, presenting the main characteristics and limitations. This talk also discusses how the results already known about software testing across multiple platforms can be applied to mobile applications and some lacks observed as research opportunities being worked in this field.
