These days I often interview QA Tester who apply for testing position in our company. After years of interviewing QA Engineers of different levels, I can attest that most of them don’t bother learning new technologies and just get by using whatever they learned some time in their past. Next week I will start asking Amazon Silk interview questions in addition to the standard mobile interview questions. The only reason is that our applications definitely will be accessed from a Kindle Fire, and we plan to add the new Amazon Silk browser to the list of test platforms.
Amazon Silk Browser
The Amazon Silk browser interview question set is not finalized yet, but I already have a few ideas. For example, does QA Tester know what does it mean WebKit based browser andif the candidate already familiar with other browsers build on WebKit engine like Chrome and Safari? Can the tester compare SPDY amd HTTP network protocols and which one of them would work faster to deliver content from EC2 to Kindle Fire?
I would like to hear from potential Quality Assurance Tester thought about privacy and security testing for Kindle Fire, considering that Amazon Silk will temporarily logs web addresses for the pages it serves, as well as IP and MAC addresses.
Does QA Engineer fear that every other Android tablet maker will start making a custom-built browser with new standards and new problems and does QA Engineer has some ideas how to reduce the cost of browser testing?
I strongly believe that the person who can provide the meaningful answers on these Amazon Silk browser interview questions would be a great addition to any mobile testing team.
