Ohai! Join in for Sauce's second mobile testing robot hackathon. If you're a lego fanatic who is also building an iOS or Android app, don't miss the chance to learn how to test your mobile apps and build a robot who can take care of that for you - all at the same event.
Each hackathon attendee will assemble their own Tapster, a mobile testing robot created by Sauce's co-founder and Selenium creator Jason Huggins. Tapster (regularly priced at $1,000) is made out of 3d-printed plastic, powered by Arduino, and is completely open source.
Once your Tapster is built, Jason will spend time helping you program and automate apps using Appium, an open source tool for testing hybrid and native mobile apps. By the end, we hope you'll take Tapster back to your co-workers and friends to automate all the mobile things.
If you don't want to build a kit but still want to join in the fun, grab a "spectator" ticket and come hang with us for the night!
Please bring your own laptop and an Android or iOS device.
