Automated Unit & Functional Tests for HTML5 Mobile Apps [Workshop]

Automated Unit & Functional Tests for HTML5 Mobile Apps [Workshop]

HTML5 and hybrid mobile apps are becoming increasingly important, whether as alternative instances of successful web apps, or as mobile-only experiences. A combination of JS unit testing and functional UI testing helps ensure every HTML5 project stays bug-free throughout release cycles, and opens up the possibility for continuously-delivered mobile apps.

In this workshop, we’ll get hands-on with QUnit (for unit testing) and Appium (for functional testing), and write some tests together for a jQuery Mobile-based HTML5 site packaged as a cross-platform hybrid mobile app using Phonegap/Cordova. Then we’ll run the tests using the Sauce Labs cloud service, dig into the results, and talk about speeding up build times using parallelisation of test runs.
