Mobile Device Testing with Appium and AWS Device Farm

Statista reports that in 2021 over 54% of web traffic is from mobile devices. When developing a customer-facing website or web application, first-class mobile device support is an absolute must for customer satisfaction and adoption. Development and testing of applications or mobile apps can be completed effectively using local simulators or a few physical devices, but how do you validate your app’s performance on a wide range of devices sizes and OS revisions, especially legacy versions!

Join John as he provides an overview of AWS Device Farm and showcases its ability to execute Appium mobile test automation jobs for your native mobile app or website on a wide range of Android and iOS devices.

During this session you will learn how to:

  • Use Python to create test for native mobile and mobile web applications

  • Execute tests in a local simulator

  • Package a test suite for AWS

  • Execute a test suite on a pool of devices on AWS Device Farm
