I have been writing manual and automated test cases professionally for eight and a half year - probably not as many as some, and maybe more than others.Over the years I have come to find that test…Continue
"So there are a couple of methods that you should use in my opinion. Since the back-end to the clients is consistently an SOA, you should execute a webservice load test against the SOA back-end independent of the clients. This will test overall…"
"Taking a second look at Brian Hall's article I noticed that he claims:
But makes no references to this idea.
On the other hand, there is a lot of evidence that Google and other major software development shops continue to employ software…"
"I have worked for several companies as a software tester and software developer in the last ten years, and each company has been different.
At my first company the software testers were organized into three teams, or about five testers each. Our job…"
"I found another bug - this one is on the mobile site.
In discussions, when you scroll down, more forum threads are supposed to appear, but instead the same forum thread appears over and over indefinitely.

"Maybe Brian Hall misinterpreted Dice's findings:
That doesn't sound bad to me, or that QA is a "technology skill that will no longer help you get a job".
Also look at the data - Dice says their data is "evidenced by…"
"For optimal experience, I would expect products A and B to both be placed into my basket, however knowing that most software development shops won't go that far to ensure the optimal experience, I would wager on experiencing either:
"The most deadly software testing sin that I've seen (both in myself, and in those with whom I, have and do currently, work) has been that of assumption. This comes in many forms at the QA stages of software development:
Assuming that the…"
""As a tester any specific tool is available for checking the Web Services is running or not."
I don't know if there is a standard to determine whether web services are running or not. I have seen some shops write special routines…"
I like your responses to my answers - I took a risk in oversimplifying there.
I agree that making the automation match the manual test case may not always be ideal or choice. That is simply something that I have often done recently. I…"
"Given: "test automation" may vastly refer to any tool that helps or enables one to test.
Why do you automate?
I automate for multiple reasons:
In order to break software more quickly or more effectively in a repeatable manner.
In order to…"

"These days my primary tools include:
Linux, whenever possible, even if only as a virtual machine, but often I install Linux as my primary OS - my current job offered me Linux from the beginning as an alternative desktop OS (usually some Debian…"
We're glad to have you. I believe that a forum is designed for asking questions, so ask away - you'll have no issue from me.
As for you question, you stated that you are looking to:

I have been working on, testing, developing, breaking, engineering, architecting, designing, and creating software for over twenty years. Seven and a half of them have been professional years. I have been in school, participating in Computer Science related activities for seven of my twenty years. I have ready thousands of books, essays, tutorials, forums, blog posts, and reports on various subjects related to all aspects of the IT industry. I have worked with eight companies, on five open community projects run by others, more than ten open source projects of my own, with hundreds of coworkers both domestically and abroad, and on several contracts both of my own initiation and because others wanted my help. Also, I participate casually in four local programming language and API user groups, a couple of global API user groups, and have attended Microsoft Tech Ed, and Agile Roots conferences. My point is that I have worked a fairly large percentage of my life on software, and I have experienced a lot of different economic situations, team and solo environments, and software communities. And in more than eighty percent of my overall experience, the resulting software has been unacceptably buggy, politics play a greater role as to when software is complete than discrete quality does, programmers don't have time and in many cases don't have the experience to engineer software properly, and management, of both software activities and people, is poorly executed, in part due to lack of understanding the problems being solved, the solutions to those problems, and also and again due to lack of experience.
