SauceCon Speaker Profile - Meet Julian Harty

Posted Feb 8th, 2018

There is a sea of data available to improve mobile app testing--once you know what to look for and how to apply relevant data.

In his upcoming talk at SauceCon March 1-2 in San Francisco, testing industry veteran Julian Harty will share his practical experience and cutting-edge research on how to improve your approach to testing by incorporating various sources of data and feedback, including reviews and mobile analytics.

As the author of the Mobile Analytics Playbook and contributor to the highly successful Mobile Developer’s Guide to the Galaxy, Julian will be able to help SauceCon attendees gather and use data from various sources, including bug reports, reviews, tweets, and in-app feedback and analytics. His presentation will cover practical and logistical aspects of how to use data to test the tools and processes and in turn, improve the apps we test.

Julian has been actively involved in many aspects of testing and development of mobile apps globally since 2006, having held roles at Google, eBay and others. He has contributed to open source apps and test automation including Selenium and several test automation frameworks for mobile apps. Currently he’s studying a PhD part-time to find ways to improve the testing and development of mobile apps using mobile analytics in addition to the other bits and pieces.

When he’s not immersed in the testing world or furthering his own education, he is actively involved in promoting open source in global education. He also works to promote accessibility, including developing software to assist visually impaired individuals with reading.
