Building in House Scalable Mobile Lab for Automation

Creating and maintaining a mobile device lab is a high priority while developing and testing modern mobile apps. Should you build your own or use the cloud solutions, or maybe you should create a hybrid solution to use both in house and cloud solution? Sargis will share our experience of building a mobile lab.

It is becoming more and more challenging to test mobile apps on different devices, with different screen sizes, running different operating systems. During the development of a mobile app, we can easily verify and test the app on a mobile simulator or emulator. However, only simulator or emulator testing isn’t enough, we need to make sure that our app works on devices that our users carry with them in their pocket.
Creating a in house Automation Mobile Lab will be a good decision if you’re looking to do automated testing, for example with Selenium and Appium.
An automation Mobile Device Lab is usually a closet or board, filled with the mobile devices we want to test on. Each device is connected to a computer which itself is registered in CI as an automation agent.
A year ago they started their journey of creating a scalable automation mobile device lab which allows them to run more than 2000 Appium tests on daily basis.
During this talk Sargis will share the experience that they gain during our long journey of creating their Scalable Automation Device Lab and the solution that allows them easily integrate it with CI tools.
