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 product management, 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 product management and testing conferences. An overview of my publications can be found here.
In 2018, I got the chance to change my field of interest and became a senior product manager at XING. At XING, I am responsible together with my team to develop and ship publishing products. For example, XING content publisher pages, XING Insider, Video Upload, Article Editor and our status update module. All products are implemented for the platforms iOS, Android and Web.
Before my career as product manager, I worked for 10 years as software tester 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.
In 2014, I published my first book about mobile testing. The title of the book is “Hands-On Mobile App Testing“. In the beginning of 2016, I released a new eBook called “Smartwatch App Testing” which is available at https://leanpub.com/smartwatchapptesting.
