QUALITY ASSURANCEDaniel is responsible for testing anything made by the development team that needs testing. With a degree in programming, Mr. Konves is not only able to navigate and test things easier, can do it more thoroughly and accurately. If the need ever arises, Daniel can correct mistakes in testing himself to further streamline the process and help make builds come out quicker and more efficiently. Additionally, Daniel is also a pinch-hitter for programming any new additions to take some of the workload off of the rest of the development team. Working at Wal-Mart as a night stocker bred speed and accuracy in Daniel's work ethic, but most of his experience towards his job at Cerasis came from college. Seeing as how video games are a very interactive form of entertainment, there is a lot of focus on user interface and controls during development. As such, Mr. Konves always has an eye out for making things easy to read, navigate, understand, and operate. He takes any opportunity he can to make something easier to use. Daniel attended Rogers State University, graduating with a BS in Video Game Development. Daniel resides in the city of Tulsa with his tight-knit family as a second-generation American, and I liks to spend free time drawing, making handy personal apps, as well as making and playing video games.
