Daniel Knott

Hi, my name is Daniel Knott and I am a passionate software tester since 2008 and a mobile product manager since summer 2018. In my software testing career, 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, 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 for my company in order to educate my colleagues (+20) to become a great mobile tester.

Since 2011, I am the blogger of this blog and publish posts about software testing, mobile testing and any other kind of interesting topics around software development. If I find the time, I am also a speaker at testing conferences and quality assurance articles. An overview of my publications can be found here.

In 2014, I published my first book about mobile testing. The title of the book is “Hands-On Mobile App Testing” and can be purchased on http://www.handsonmobileapptesting.com/. In the beginning of 2016, Daniel released a new eBook called “Smartwatch App Testing” and is published at https://leanpub.com/smartwatchapptesting.

In 2018, I got the chance to change my field of interest and to become a mobile product manager at XING. Currently, I am working as product manager for the XING News products related to publishing like XING content publisher pages, Insider, Video Upload and Publishing Editor. All products are implemented for iOS, Android and Web.

Before being the product manager for XING News I was responsible for the XING products related to Microsoft including the XING Windows 10 App, the XING Microsoft Outlook Addin.
