I am currently a QA lead at Nike, leading a team of 6 in manual and automated testing efforts.

Prior to Nike, I was at Webtrends for 2+ years, and prior to that was at Microsoft for 13 years. During my time at Microsoft my responsibilities evolved from test planning and manual testing on various projects to --> writing automation and overseeing manual testing efforts from vendors to --> Developing automation tools and processes for the Windows Live organization including a web UI automation framework and a test result reporting platform as well as other smaller tools. At Webtrends I was the most senior automation engineer and was responsible for creating and executing on an automation plan for the company. We went from no automation to significant coverage via UI automation for both of our legacy products as well as near 100% web service automation for one of our new products. In addition, I created performance test suites for 3 products and was involved in hiring 5 additional developers in test for the company.

comment Calculating Average Load from Peak load and vice versa
Good luck, I'm not sure that such a thing exists, there are a lot of variables to take into consideration that could make drastic differences to the calculation.

comment Help finding child class with cssSelector syntax
It does not support selecting by innerText, but I try to avoid selecting by innerText as much as possible anyways, especially if I have a localized web site that I may want to test in multiple languages. Even without localization, innerText is much more likely to change than an ID on an element. Lastly, you can find a list of elements by CSS selector, and then iterate through them to match on text. Some frameworks such as Geb have built in support for this that is pretty simple.

comment What practices are used to avoid constantly testing the login screen in web driver tests?
It really depends on the authentication mechanism that your application is using, as well as the language which you are wanting to write it for. Most languages have http libraries available like HttpWebRequest in .net, or HTTPBuilder in Java. Essentially, you can use a tool like the network tab in the browser dev tools, or fiddler to capture the traffic going to your web server, and then you would have to create that same request(s) in your code using one of the above mentioned libraries.

comment selenium.ElementNotVisibleException: Element is not currently visible
I don't see the original input field in the html block you posted. Did you get the correct section of html? Did you try executing the CSS selector in the browser developer tools console? Does it return multiple elements?

comment Should I take interview of manual tester who has more experience than me
I would especially highlight the part about not being afraid. Don't let years of experience change your perception of the person you are interviewing. I have made many good hires of people with only a few years experience and have not been interested in people with 20+ years experience. Look for their ability to perform the job, not the number of years doing it.

Are you getting some, but not all links, or no links at all? Are you able to find other elements?

Have you looked at Jmeter or Gatling? Both free load testing tools with getting started documentation.

comment IE 11 gives Unable to find element with css selector or xpath or Xpath expression cannot be evaluated or does notresult in a WebElement
Are you using waits at all to ensure elements are visible on the page before interacting with them? Could this be a timing issue?

comment Selenium find all elements without a class
Sorry, to be more clear, you are right when it comes to XPath selectors. If you use the find elements by class name function or a CSS selector, it would find any match, not match on the entire string.

This is language agnostic. This is how a browser treats a CSS selector, it always works the same way, regardless of which language you are using for Selenium.
