Selenium Conf - Robots


Published on

Mobile testing is different than desktop web testing. It needs the right tool for the job. In this case, we need robots. Lots of them. Lots of little robot fingers touching lots of little mobile device screens. In this talk, Jason Huggins will bring out some robots from his lab and demonstrate how you, too, can join in the robot revolution that will destroy civilization… and make a decent living testing mobile apps in the process.
