Agreed. It may be better in Programming?

Agreed, this isn't relevant to SQA.

comment Where can I find good tutorials for Cloud Environment, Automated Testing in Cloud and Tools
I appreciate that it's often hard to formulate specific questions as a beginner, but this is just too broad. What's your purpose for learning this stuff? That might help us to suggest good terms to search for.

comment Who should do the automation test?
Lucas, this isn't a good fit for a question and answer site like Stack Exchange. As worded, it's just a trigger for discussion - it would be better in a forum aimed at discussion, or if you want to discuss here, head over to chat.

comment Can testers benefit from knowing the status of unit tests?
I think I'd need to know a bit more context. It is potentially valuable information, but for a whole host of different reasons e.g. if I know the devs in a team regularly don't bother to fix broken unit tests, that will affect my approach. But in my current environment, it's just a bit of a "Huh? Why should any of the unit tests be failing if the dev is done coding?", because I work with conscientious devs :)

comment Which version of Selenium should I learn?
Hi logician, there are an awful lot of questions that cover this already - have a look at sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/8685/… or sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/7312/… - or quite a few others when searching for selenium and training or learning.

comment Should Copy Paste be allowed in Confirm e-mail address field?
@sree, you're better off having a look at somewhere like ux.stackexchange.com to see if it's a common practice. I'd agree with user246, this is more about the domain expectations than testing.

comment Need SQL Injection Document?
Closing as an apparent duplicate - if the other question isn't what you're asking, then please add some more details to distinguish this question clearly from the one linked by Twaldigas.

comment What are basic metrics of coverage with functional UI automation testing
Note: the reason I am not talking about number of test cases is that I believe that's a meaningless metric. Show me any test suite, and I bet I can add tests to it. Talking about 100% of your test cases being covered is begging the question of why you picked those tests and not some other set from the infinite possibilities available. If you're already reporting numbers of test cases to your client, you might think of this as an opportunity to provide a slightly more nuanced report.

comment How to configure selenium Web driver into Eclipse
Hi @Prateek-Jain - welcome to SQA! Given that links can change, we generally advise that if you're giving a link as an answer, that if possible you should give a summary of what the link includes. That way later readers can either try to find the information again even if the link is now dead, or at least get some idea of what your answer was. Write for the future too! :)

I'd agree - @Subzero, we can ask to migrate this if you wish?

comment Selenium/Webdriver with team member that don't have programing skills
Hi @david-plante - welcome to SQA! I'd like to answer, as at my current company all testers code, but not all of them started out as coders. But I'd like to understand first - what non-coding testing tasks have you got? Are you proposing that all tests will be automated now, or is it just that you feel you need more of the testers contributing to be able to build your automation suite?

comment Python or Ruby , Which has the better support for selenium
I actually use Ruby and love it, but +1 for "you don't have to use the same language - use the language in which your team will be more productive". For us, this is why we picked Ruby and are happy with it. (As a benefit, later on our Ops team picked Chef, so we now have more Ruby experts on hand).

comment How to deal with automation naysayers?
There's a second article, linked to from the first one, that talks about exactly that - understanding why people aren't interested. But rather than "convincing them automation will help rather than hinder", it focuses on convincing them that you understand their needs first (by, of course, putting in the work to actually understand). I think that is absolutely key: dhemery.com/articles/resistance_as_a_resource

comment Selenium IDE and Selenese scripts in Continuous Integration
The other benefit I've heard people get from Robot Framework is that it allows those testers who are interested to gradually transition into writing code, as they gradually get to understand the lower layers.

comment Alternative to Selenium Grid Console?
I'd agree with Niels, it's probably worth giving some idea of what functionality you need or you'll either get no answers, or pretty random ones. I'll put this on hold for new answers to give you the time to add a bit more information.

comment Pre-requisites & Procedure to install selenium tool on Windows 7 Operating system?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about something that could be easily found in the Selenium docs.

Hi @Venkat, I'm afraid this question is off-topic. As it's pretty old, I hope you figured it out somehow!

comment Selenium WebDriver with Java: How do I read username and password from an excel file to Java to use in website testing
Agree, off-topic. @obulisaravanan - this question on Stack Overflow might help stackoverflow.com/questions/1516144/… , or you can just search for "read excel java" for a lot of different results: stackoverflow.com/search?q=read+excel+java
