    When, Where, & How to Successfully Use Test Automation for Mobile Apps


    Reliable, well-engineered test automation is often a mythical goal that developers agree is a good idea, but in reality don't have the time and resources to execute properly. Considering the number of apps on the market and the fickleness of customers (after 2 crashes 84% will go elsewhere) testing is imperative just to stay relevant today. We will dispel the myth that automation solves all QA issues and eliminates the need for manual testing and QA teams. Machines are great at testing mind-numbing repetitive tasks and humans are great at testing user experience, and when manual and automated tests are used in conjunction the outcome is a better app. We’ll cover how to identify what should be automated and what shouldn’t. Fortunately best practices, strategies, and tools are emerging to cope with this difficult topic, and our talk will break them down across the following topics:

    Developing an Automation Strategy: When what and where to automate Automation tools: An overview of different tools and type of automated tests available This talk is for mobile app developers and QA teams who are interested in learning more about automated testing on iOS and Android.

    TAO QA Webinar: Crowd Source Testing


    Crowdsourcing has become widely acknowledged as a productivity solution across numerous industries. However, for companies incorporating crowdsourcing into existing business practices, specific issues must be addressed: What problem are we trying to solve? How do we control the process? How do we incentivize people to achieve our goals? Ultimately, the key to successfully employing a crowdsourcing model is to move beyond the realm of the "mob" to create an engaged, interactive community of diverse and skilled professionals. In the world of quality assurance, crowdsourcing has the potential to effectively solve emerging challenges and take your testing to new heights. Using real-world examples, uTest's John Montgomery explains how you can leverage the crowd to complement your internal systems, ensure systems work as intended under real-world conditions and effectively manage the scalability of efforts.

    SBIR Phase 1 Proposal: Determining Which Agency to Submit to


    The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is a highly competitive federal funded Research and Development (R&D) program that is a vehicle for small business to commercialize innovative cutting edge technology, processes, and/or methodologies within a myriad of categories and concentrations. However, the questions become where does my research fit; what are the factors that determine the category for the research submission; can I submit the proposal in more than one category or more than one agency?

    More often small business and research professionals struggle with where their idea, concept, and/or product are best suited when deciding to submit an SBIR Phase I proposal. If a proposal is not placed in the correct agency, including the correct category the proposal will be rejected.

    This must-attend Webinar focuses on assisting Principal Investigators (PI’s), Research Professors and other Research Professionals on determining where to submit their SBIR Phase I Proposal. Your expert presenter will examine the SBIR Phase I Programs at the National Institute of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department of Defense (DoD) in order to obtain an understanding of the types of research is being funded and the intricacies of the various agencies and categories in order to assist the participants in aligning their research properly.
