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.

According to this answer: stackoverflow.com/questions/9303889/… it could be due to using the 32-bit vs 64-bit version.

comment Isolating defect in distributed event-driven system
Ops uses the usage database mainly to track how many events or conversations have happened over time, and how many were successful vs ended in errors. They also regularly query it for errors that have occurred every few minutes so they can be notified quickly if the products become unstable for any reason.
