Configuring Appium for the first time in Mac OSX

In this new post, I'll try to go over all the steps needed to correctly setup Appium on a Mac. It depends on a few tools and libraries and requires some steps to set it up succesfully.

Parameterization Tools: TestSpicer

Some time ago I talked here about parameterization (or randomization) and why it is important when we are automating. Back then I talked about some tools that we can use to make our tests more random.

Remote Starter Hackd Project

MeetMe offers HACKD every couple of months and during one of the recent events, I decided to finally work on this project, which I call “Really Remote Starter”.
