There's a shift towards open source mobile test automation tools happening today among developers and QAs. Whether it be Appium, Calabash or anything else: all are good, with some major limitations. But can we get the best of each in one tool?
While a chosen tool may work well when you first start using it, things can quickly get out of hand with changing business requirements. But the world of open source is kind enough to let you fix the limitations yourself.
This talk is going to be about speaker's encounter with this problem. Rajdeep has been working with Calabash-Android for a few years now. With new business requirements, he had to build more capabilities inside the driver. This talk is about the use-case, how Rajdeep solved it, what was learned, and what the options are for dealing with these issues.
Rajdeep is a Senior Test Automation engineer at Badoo. He has a passion for test automation. He has worked on automation of many mobile apps across various domains for more than 7 years. Rajdeep has authored open source testing tools "parallel_calabash" and "nakal" (RubyGems) for mobile apps testing.
