One month ago, we organized and hosted the Mobile Testing Summit, a one day conference devoted to all things about mobile test automation. In reflecting on this event (which, I must say, went swimmingly well), I thought I'd pull back the curtain and give you a look at how it came to be and what we all got out of it. mailing list was started to keep the conversation going well after the Summit ended. Basically, the start of a new community was born.
Given the success of this first event, you can guess we've already got our sights set on another Mobile Testing Summit next summer. We will keep some things the same, such as putting together a varied mix of speakers, catering from a local food favorite like Bi-Rite (which was de-LISH), and picking a venue that is equally artsy and conference atypical as the Terra Gallery was. And we are thinking about how we can change some things up too, like perhaps extending the event over two days, putting out a call for proposals while also inviting certain speakers, adding a workshop / hack session and building in even more time for conversing and idea sharing.
We are excited to see where the community will be in 9 months time (no doubt a lot will change) and we hope you’ll join us for the second Mobile Testing Summit. If you’re curious to know what was covered at this year’s event, be sure to check out the videos, slides, and Jason’s keynote address. Happy (mobile) testing!
