About the blog

Automation Panda is a blog about software, testing, and (most importantly) automation from my own career experiences.  I hope to make this blog both a personal journal for my professional growth as well as a valuable information resource for others.  Please comment, share, and subscribe!

About me

My name is Andrew Knight, and I’m a software engineer who specializes in test automation.  I’ve spent years doing software development, all kinds of testing, some compiler theory, and even databases.  My main programming languages are Python, Java, C#, and Perl, but I have worked with others and can pick up new ones quickly.

Currently, I am employed by LexisNexis in Raleigh, NC.  In the past, I have also worked for MaxPoint, NetApp, and IBM.  I hold a Computer Science BS/MS from RIT.  Unrelated to software, my wife and I also operate Reformed Menswear and Lace & Grace Bridal.

I want to become more involved in the software community.  In September 2016, I delivered a talk entitled “Testing is Fun in Python!” at PyData Carolinas 2016.  In March 2017, I spoke at the PyLadies RDU meet-up about Python testing.  I also have publications on indexing uncertain data through RIT, LAP, and IEEE.
