This ISTQB Specialist course is designed to teach participants Mobile testing challenges and effective test techniques. This course provides testers and test managers with an understanding of test fundamentals for mobile applications. Attendees will get a brief introduction to mobile testing, including how mobile app testing differs from testing PC, web-based, and client/server apps. Attendees will then learn how to apply and adapt proven best practices to test planning and design for mobile apps, in a hands-on, creative fashion, using actual mobile applications in a workshop setting. Attendees will outline tests for functional and non-functional characteristics such as performance, security, reliability, and usability, again using real apps for hands-on work. We’ll look at the challenges associated with test environments, test data, and test automation, with attendees designing test environments, selecting simulators, identifying the wide range of test tools available for mobile projects, evaluating cloud-based testing options, and creating a keyword-driven test grammar to create automated regression tests for their chosen mobile app. Finally, attendees will develop a plan for future-proofing their testing, a major challenge in the fast-paced world of mobile apps!
We suggest that attendees hold the ISTQB Foundation Level certificate, especially if they intend to take the ISTQB Mobile Application Tester exam, but non-certificate holders can benefit from the course.
2 Days/Lecture & Lab
This course is ideal for testers experienced with the development of web-based, PC, and client-server applications, entry-level testers with an interest in mobile testing, and experienced developers with a lot to a little knowledge of testing who work in mobile app development. Testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers, and software developers working on mobile apps will find this course useful, informative, and fun.
