Hi, my name is Daniel Knott and I love digital products with high quality. Since 2011, I am the blogger of this blog and write posts about software testing, mobile testing, product management and any other kind of interesting topics around software development. If I find the time, I am also a speaker at different conferences. An overview of my publications can be found here.
I have more than +13 years of professional experience as software tester and product manager in software development projects from different industries. Together with my teams we developed, tested and shipped digital products to our customers. During my time as product manager (+3 years), I was responsible for all kinds of publishing products, e.g. a WYSIWYG web and mobile article editor, a status update module and building a stories product for the social media network XING. All products have been developed, tested and shipped for the platforms web (small & big screen), iOS and Android.
As software tester, I worked for companies from different industries such as IBM, Accenture, XING and AOE. In different agile projects, I gained strong knowledge in different areas of software testing e.g. mobile (web & native), search and recommendation technologies, web and desktop applications.
In these projects I was always responsible for the whole test management, manual and automated testing using technologies/ software such as Robotium, Espresso, Keep It Functional (KIF), Calabash, Cucumber, Capybara, Selenium 2 and Java. Furthermore, I provided internal mobile app testing trainings, to educate my colleagues (+20) to become a great mobile tester.
In 2014, I published my first book about mobile testing. The title of the book is “Hands-On Mobile App Testing“, which is available in 2 languages – English and German. Since May 2022, the book is available in the 2nd edition and is available at leanpub.com. In the beginning of 2016, I released a new eBook called “Smartwatch App Testing” which is available at https://leanpub.com/smartwatchapptesting.
Since October 2021, I am working as Head of Software Testing at MaibornWolff. In this role I am responsible in leading a department of +35 software test engineers to help them improving their software testing skills and to work in various projects across different industries.
