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 IDE newbie - click on button not working .net
When you said "doesn't work" do you mean nothing happens, or an exception occurs? It could be an issue of an incorrect css identifier, but we don't have the button html to see if that is the case. Can you include the page's html, or the relevant part of it? We could then create css, xpath or alternative identifiers for you that would work.

comment SQL “sandbox” for new QA staff training: DB structure, approach, deployment and maintenance?
As for SQL vs Oracle, the concepts are going to be pretty much identical, however there are a number of differences in the syntax and built in functions: dba-oracle.com/oracle_news/…

You may want to include information about what sort of tests you are running, what tool you are using to execute them, etc.
