Virtualization is a great way to test those OS and application upgrades and gives you a good option for testing mobile devices. Learn these advantages and some of the caveats between different environments, underlying hardware challenges, and things to keep your app from exploding on your mobile device. Topics covered will include virtualizing environments with VirtualBox, Vmware, Parallels; development environments with Xcode, Android SDK, Windows Mobile or Blackberry (if time); emulation & compatibility with SheepShaver and Crossover; third-party clouds like SauceLabs and Azure.
