Crowdtesting involves mostly real people, and partially testers, but at the end of the day it represents your product relevant user base – no test fatigue, blinkers or folks stuck in a rut. What’s more, we’re dealing with real devices – no emulators, no sterile lab conditions, instead we’re talking relevant mobile networks and real-life smartphone setups. Take this combined with your traditional test strategy, and crowd testing will give you a lot of freedom and fast top-notch product feedback. No automation needed! We will take a look at how this could also help your testing organization.

This talk will shed light on what can help you to find the right long-term strategy and provider for your needs. You will find advice on how to adjust your test strategy, what to pursue in a pilot, how to target relevant device groups and equip you with what’s important in your journey to making your mobile releases a success, with happy customers and happy testers.
