Much like everything in testing, it depends on the context.

comment Who writes stories and tests in Agile? BA or tester?
Could you better define your question? From the contents and the title I'm not sure what your question is. Is it what does a tester do in BDD if he isn't writing acceptance tests?

@user246 why would giving examples create a bad tester? A bad unmotivated tester is just that, examples or no. I would think that giving a tester examples would empower them to understand whats expected, allow them to automate and then exploratory test the remaining pieces. I'd say the missing piece is working together as a team to come up with the examples, Tester, Dev, and BSA together. To me reviewing later just leads to wasted work.

comment Why isn't Sahi more common?
Thanks for your input you can see my comment above. If you encourage a more open community that would increase its use.

comment Why isn't Sahi more common?
Thanks for the info. The fact that I didn't get any Sahi users to answer is negative enough for me. If there isn't an active open community discussing its use, I wouldn't adopt it.

comment What is automation testing and why do we need it?
Manual testing is expensive. Ask yourself, do we have the time or money to check all functionality each release manually? Running automated tests is much cheaper and repeatable (if done right).

comment Language preferences in the QA community
Javascript is as common as the web, so any tester with coding and web experience would have knowledge. codecademy.com is a great place to send those who want to start learning it. As BJ mentioned, its more important to focus on programming concepts.

comment Software testing: a first step to development?
Your career is what you make it. I've seen testers transition into many different roles - Scrummaster, BSA, PO, Developer, etc. Being a great tester doesn't make you great at a different role, that's the persons choice (which includes staying an awesome tester). I personally would not take a testing job unless I wanted to be a tester, it isn't a stepping stone.
