Hello everyone! Vishal from SET team.
Having offices in different regions such as Tokyo, San Francisco and London, we thought it will make sense to share our devices across regions before setting up our own device farm. And we did it using OpenSTF on GCP. In this blog post, I will share our experiences and hacks we used to setup STF at Mercari.
Why Device Farm?
Delivering high-quality apps across all of the different devices and OS combinations is a major challenge for all mobile app developers. Only way to confirm app quality is by testing on various devices. This will require buying lots of devices which brings another big problem of device management. It is very difficult to manage devices across teams and projects. If we can have a central system where all devices are connected remotely, and these devices can be accessed for development and QA purpose on-demand, this would be the ideal solution. And OpenSTF is the only open-source tool available currently which let us do so.続きを読む
