Mobile Test Automation

Uncategorized | Saturday September 14 2013 9:02 pm | Comments Off

NativeX started investing in Mobile Web and iOS/Android apps in early 2010.  At this time there wasn’t a lot of test automation. In 2012 the idea of Test automation was introduced to start developing test automation solutions to build quality and testability into the products. In this talk, we will share our experience and learning of utilizing open source tools to build automated testing in NativeX’s development and continuous delivery environment. We will talk about Test Pyramid and go into more detail of specific open source tools that have worked well for us. Some of the open source tools we use are SoapUI, Android automation tools Robotium, iOS automation tool Appium, and Continuous Integration system Jenkins.

Speakers: Jon Nelson and Jeff Bertram

Eventbrite - Scaling with Cassandra

Minnebar 2013 – Scaling with Cassandra from Jeff Bollinger

NativeX (formerly W3i) recently transitioned a large portion of their backend infrastructure from MS SQL Server to Apache Cassandra. Today, its Cassandra cluster backs its mobile advertising network supporting over 10 million daily active users producing over 10,000 transactions per second with an average database request latency of under 2 milliseconds. Going from relational to noSQL required NativeX’s engineers to re-train, re-tool and re-think the way it architects applications and infrastructure. Learn why Cassandra was selected as a replacement, what challenges were encountered along the way, and what architecture and infrastructure were involved in the implementation.

Jeff is CTO at NativeX (formerly W3i) with more than 10 years of experience in engineering and leadership. Jeff is experienced in building teams and infrastructure, helping W3i transform from an early stage startup to high growth company. His expertise includes agile methods, data center infrastructure, engineering for scale and wrangling data. Jeff received a BS in Business Computer Information Systems from St. Cloud State University. He is the founder of the Mobile St. Cloud User Group and member of the SCSU Computer Advisory Council.
