Thanks to my hosts at SQuAD conference for inviting me. I’ve revamped much of my material on the topic of testing mobile apps. As ever I have lots more I could do to improve the materials. Time and practice will help me do so. As would useful feedback. Here’s the set of slides in PDF format
Don’t Panic Mobile Testers Guide to the Galaxy (16 Sep 2013)c
The c at the end reminds me it’s the compressed version so I could get the file size down to 6MB.

Here is the revised presentation on Symbiotic Relationships between Testing and Social, Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud computing presented at the Unicom conference in Bangalore, India: Testing SMAC Unicom (revision 11 Jul 2013)
There are a couple of additions to the earlier revision and the slides have been reformatted to make the it slightly better to read.
I found the following article instructive and interesting on challenges for A/B testing Mobile Native Apps http://www.scribd.com/doc/113671377/Challenges-in-A-B-Testing-Mobile-Native-Apps
Here are my slides for my keynote talk Symbiotic relationships between Testing and Analytics. This was presented at the Nordic Testing Days conference in Tallinn, Estonia, in June 2013.
The material includes:
- An overview of how web and mobile analytics software ‘works’
- Calibration of the tools, our understanding and our practices
- Potential pitfalls of using Analytics
- How to apply the concepts
- Some possible assessment criteria
I hope you find it useful.
I gave the opening keynote at the annual conference of the Danish Software Testing Board, in Copenhagen on May 30th 2013. Here is a link to my slides in PDF format. Testing Social Mobile Analytics and Cloud Computing
Here are the slides for my keynote presentation at the VistaCon 2013 conference in Saigon, Vietnam Human testing of mobile apps
This presentation was made at a seminar organised by HP in Helsinki, on 11th April 2013. I don’t claim it’s definitive or complete, rather I cover several topics I consider important and relevant based on my experiences working at and with companies who create and develop mobile apps.

If you are interested in developing, testing, and marketing mobile apps there are several excellent eBooks available that include these topics. I liked the books so much I’ve ended up contributing to both of them. They are collaborative works with multiple contributors and authors. They are fun, easy to read and slightly quirky.
Here are links to both of them:
http://www.wipconnector.com/download/GuideToTheParallelUniverse_3rdEdition.pdf (this is the guide on how to market your mobile app). My contribution is the introduction to Mobile Analytics topic.
http://www.enough.de/products/mobile-developers-guide/ has a download link to the current version of the Development Guide – advises people on how to develop (write/create) and test mobile apps.I’ve written several chapters entirely, including the ones on testing and mobile analytics, and edit the entire book.
