Paul Stringer joins us for this month's London SPA meeting to tell us how best to apply UI test automation to mobile applications.

Automated Acceptance Testing is one of the essential ingredients of a healthy agile software practice. Unfortunately, attempts to adopt this on mobile usually result in the creation of slow, brittle and highly complex UI tests. Where did we go wrong?

This talk will look at the real secret of acceptance testing that allows mobile teams and others to maintain sustainable progress, ideal for any industry where demands for constant innovation and change is relentless.
