Hi, my name is Daniel Knott and I am a passionate software tester since 2008. In my 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.
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.
We'll cover all the basics of mobile testing and have even sprinkled in some quick, fun tasks throughout to help you develop new mobile testing use cases to implement at your company.
It would be advantageous if you have a basic understanding of software testing, but no mobile testing skills are required.
