Mobile App Testing and Analysis: Getting There in Industrial Cases
Abstract: Achieving successful technology adoption in industrial practices has often been an important goal for both academic and industrial researchers. However, it is generally challenging for researchers to successfully transfer research results into industrial practices or collaborate with industrial practitioners to produce solutions for successful adoption in industrial practices. This talk presents experiences and lessons learned from years of collaborating with industrial practitioners on successfully developing and deploying solutions for mobile app testing and analysis in the context of major companies such as Tencent (WeChat) and Alibaba.
