In the future, maybe a couple of months, I will be working on a new kind of project, for me. We have an old program which needs to be updated for modern times, and part of that update is that this program will need to work in seemingly identical ways for Windows and Android devices. Some time after that (maybe a year), we will also want to port that over to iOS devices.
Now I’m pretty good with automation in a Windows environment, and reasonably good with programing in C# and a little bit out of practice with Python. I can also pick up new languages and environments and learn them to acceptable levels in a very short amount of time.
That being said, I feel confident in our automation strategy and my ability to automate once I have the right environment, but I’m still feeling a bit overwhelmed.
In my research, I wanted to find an Android emulator for Windows which I could start practicing in, which would then hopefully be used when I automate some of the testing. Most of what I found were lists. Big lists. HUGE lists. And none of these lists actually give me enough information to help me make a decision about which emulator to use.
So, based on that, I have two questions (at first) to you, my dear community:
- Is there an Android emulator (for Windows) which is head-and-shoulders better than the rest for a certain context?
- Do you need any more information to answer the first question constructively?
