About 5 Exploratory Test Attacks for Breaking Mobile Software:

In the world of mobile systems and smart apps, developers and testers must do more than just look for feature bugs. To find potential failures and serious errors, their arsenal should include attack-based exploratory testing. In the tradition of James Whittaker’s How to Break Software books, Jon Hagar applies the “attack” concept to five test areas. Jon examines common industry patterns of product failures and shares five of his favorite software test attacks for native, web-based, and hybrid apps. He explains when and how to conduct the attacks, including the pros and cons of the attacks. Take back an arsenal of these attacks that you can employ on your current or next project.Please RSVP so that we have another exciting meetup to network and learn.
