Please join us for a Shopzilla and ThoughtWorks co-sponsored event, "A talk in two halves" discussing mobile application development. We'll start by looking at the overall trends and challenges in mobile development, including an overview of the different platforms. We'll discuss cross-platform options and the trade-offs associated with them. We'll also describe the agile process ThoughtWorks is using to predictably deliver mobile apps on 3 distinct platforms. A key component of this delivery is rapid feedback via a suite of automated tests.
In the second half of the talk we'll dive into some details around how we perform automated testing. We'll show how we test on the iPad and iPhone platforms using Frank, a tool that ThoughtWorks developed to remotely drive native iOS apps using cucumber.
