1) Ron Werner, QualityMinds - Dragons and Knights - Mobile Test Automation using Calabash
Mobile Testing specialist Ron wants to make a difference and packed the story of a mobile automation journey into a medieval tale with dragons, knights, and an obligatory princess to be rescued! The story of the knight Sir Rawnell is about to unfold, un unsung hero who rode out to fight a dragon and save the princess. For his quest, given to him by a global leader in construction management software, he had to chose the right weapon. His account will tell you how he found Calabash to automate the end-to-end tests for an iOS & Android hybrid app. The final selection was a difficult one, as you will be told, but he was happy with his choice. Alas, fierce difficulties and hardship are looming! Did he succeed in his quest? Register to this talk to find out… In the second half Ron will „walk the talk“ and present a live demo of Calabash and Cucumber. He will demonstrate on a hybrid app how to get started creating your own tests. He will share the joys of the interactive Ruby console - prepare to see the beauty of identifying native and web elements inside an app, how to use the console to query your app under test and help you debug your tests. But no fear, thanks to Cucumber the tests are written as BDD (Given-When-Then), making it easy for all to follow his actions. He will show how you, becoming or being a keen automation engineer, can follow his trails and start your own mobile automation project with Calabash. Finally, we will discuss the future of testing using Calabash, as the main open source contributor Xamarin has announced the end of their feature developments.

2) Asaf Saar, Sauce Labs - Discovering Appium - A journey for beginners
Appium is an open source test automation framework for use with native, hybrid and web mobile apps. In fact it is the most common open source solution for Mobile Test Automation. In this talk we will discuss and learn how to onboard Appium. We will cover the good and the bad, the easy and the not so, the ins and out of the solution along with tips & tricks to be successful and in addition a decent coverage of other open source and free alternatives. Lastly we will review how tests can be executed locally on a USB connected mobile device, a local emulator or simulator, or against cloud based virtual and real devices.
