I am currently a QA lead at Nike, leading a team of 4 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 Selenium WebDriver: select value from KendoUI DropDownList
Ah, that would definitely explain it for that case. I was going off of the example that was provided in the question, which still had a select element with child options.

comment Selenium WebDriver: select value from KendoUI DropDownList
I'm still not sure what you mean. By "The controls you see on the page" what are you referring to? Once the JavaScript executes and you are looking at the DOM loaded in the browser, it for sure is just a select element with option elements as children.

comment Selenium WebDriver: select value from KendoUI DropDownList
Just curious, is there a reason why Webdriver's SelectByValue method or clicking directly on the Option wouldn't work?

comment Reporting Intermittent Bugs
Absolutely agree. Another technique I like to use if you have automation is to execute the automation a number of times (100?) and see how often it occurs and see if there are any patterns you can see about when/why it occurs.

comment Industry standard on testing zoom levels
Isn't supporting zooming part of accessibility? People with vision problems often need to zoom in order to be able to read text on web sites. If your web site automatically re-adjust the size so as not to break the formatting (which I have actually seen quite a bit) then people with vision problems won't be able to view the site without use of third party tools (magnifying glass apps). With that said, so long as the JavaScript isn't doing anything crazy to auto re-size then testing one zoom level should be equivalent to testing all.

comment How to open multiple browsers using webdriver?
+1 I just re-read the question and realized they most likely are asking how to open multiple browser windows simultaneously and not different browsers as my answer pointed to... Long holiday weekend :-)

comment What test generators do exist?
@dzieciou - Alan's answer to the question you linked is spot on. I used model based testing a few times and it was successful when used for state based machines, but not so useful when applied to something like UI automation or rest web services. It can be used SOMETIMES with those features, if there is a specific flow or tree that you can follow and you want to test that.

I haven't used Gatling, but from what I have read, it should meet your needs.

Agree, also I have had some success using Selenium to write one off performance tests (not re-using existing functional tests) for the sole purpose of measuring performance while under load.

I agree with user246's answer. You may also want to look at this: sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/3551/…
