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 How to close pop up window in Selenium webdriver?
Knowing common terminology for browser windows can help you in the future. Popup generally refers to a completely new browser window and is what people will assume if you use that term. This is an inline add or popover within your existing web page.

I really do not like tools such as Cucumber. In my experience, they are just as difficult and proprietary to learn as actually writing automated tests in a programming language AND you still have to have a developer writing all of the automation code anyways.

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

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.
