World Domination: Next Steps
Web browsers? Too easy. Mobile apps? Mildly amusing. It's time for the Appium project to get ambitious.
The new goal: Automating anything anywhere in the world. Cars, planes, watches, toasters — if it's got software inside, you'll use Appium to test it.
How will we do it? Attend this talk to find out!

Appium hit the open source stage almost 7 years ago and has gone through many iterations of development since then. In this talk, we'll look at how Appium continues to grow, and how the Appium devs are working to ensure Appium's relevance for the future.
The world of testing is rapidly changing. It's not just about functional correctness anymore: UX testing, performance testing, visual testing, and no doubt several other kinds of testing have descended upon us. Tools and methodologies have also proliferated—image analysis, AI, and other new terms give us pause. What will testing even be like in 5 years?
I don't know the future, but I know that Appium's philosophy and development methodology are well-suited to ensuring Appium adapts to whatever the testing ecosystem becomes, and I'll give examples both of how Appium itself is evolving to take advantage of new technologies, as well as how Appium's own ecosystem is growing (through a proliferation of Appium-related vendors and products). And of course, we'll save a bit of time for something … interesting.

I have been a functional exploratory tester. I was motivated to move out of exploratory testing and go into automation. Thankfully, someone pulled me aside and told me - I am more suited to be a functional exploratory tester and I am business savvy. I didn't shy away from code. I worked closely with developers, my testing approach involved reading code (didn't write any) and brought in value to developers and to the business. I grew up as a tester being coached by experts, reading blogs from experts and learning that automation will help exploratory testers do more.
In my wait - I found very little effort that has gone in direction. I partnered with developers to be building some products.
I failed multiple times but here are my failed attempts
1. Tool for Social Media Driven Testing for Testers
2. Tool for mapping the heuristics and oracles to test ideas
3. A checklist tool for testing mobile apps and scoring on quality for start-ups
I would like to share
- The thinking behind building these tools and their value
- How purely focusing only on automation is taking away the possibility of building tools
- How I would love the community to start building tools
- How I can help and how they can help me

Appium is an open-source tool for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS mobile, Android mobile, and Windows desktop platforms. It is "cross-platform" and allows you to write tests against multiple platforms (iOS, Android, Windows), using the same API. This enables code reuse between iOS, Android, and Windows test suites.
This workshop will help you get started with Appium by covering key concepts like:
- Client/Server Architecture
- Desired Capabilities
- Appium Server
- Appium Clients
- Appium Desktop
Think of this as a one-day crash course in Appium.
