Testers' Island Discs Ep16 - Danny Dainton
This episode of Testers' Island Discs was supported by TestRail, the test management tool that makes testing simpler - it works the way you test. Learn more and try it for free at www.gurock.com/testrail.
You've heard him name-checked for the past few episodes, so now it's time to hear from the man himself, Danny Dainton! Danny talks to us about his unique journey to the island, including a ten-year spell in the military and a difficult first experience with testing.
We get deep into a technical discussion about how to use the API development/testing tool Postman, and talk more broadly about discovery, applied learning, writing and helping others, including Danny's accolades on Stack Overflow - with some seriously varied songs along the way.
