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.

Good to hear, can you share what was wrong so if someone else has the same problem in the future they might learn from it?

comment Should I unit test for null values even if it can never happen?
If you end up calling this method from anywhere else in your code, you would have to do the same exact check for null values prior to calling the method. I would suggest actually moving the check for null values into the method itself so that you would not need repetitive code that could easily be missed. You could then have unit tests that verified if either of the values passed to the method were null that the method would skip doing anything.

comment In WebDriver I need to locate a text that's sibling to a tag
In the above code, the "2Hrs, 56Min" and "59Min" are both text within the div tag. In order to be a sibling, the div tag would have to be closed and the second string "59Min" would need to be within another tag. To get the "59Min" simply get the text of the div, and then parse the text to find the characters after the last white space.

comment Web browser plugin to pause JavaScript execution?
I usually just execute javascript to get that, something like this, depending on your programming language: String innerhtml = ((JavascriptExecutor)driver).executeScript("return arguments[0].innerHTML;", webElement);

comment jmeter thread group not running all assigned users
How much resources are being utilized on your machine when you run these tests? Are you using any plugins that may be consuming a large amount of memory, or cpu? When you tell it to run 25 threads, it will attempt to do so, but if there are not enough threads available, I'm not sure if it would error out or simply not use all of the threads like you describe.

comment Standard set of unit tests for data layer code
Some of the things you mention seem like they would be leaning into validating the database software functionality itself rather than giving you much value testing your own database layer.

comment Test cases for media migrating from the file location to a database
Can you add any additional details? Are these pictures then being served up by a web site? Was the website code changed in order to pull from the new location? Are you thinking of issues with performance? Are you asking about tools to verify that the correct image is shown, or that it does not 404, etc?

comment Editing readonly field in JMeter
What do you mean by a read only field? A textbox with text that can't be edited? Something else? JMeter records and plays back the HTTP request that is sent to the server. Nothing in that request is "read only". You can change whatever you want and send it. I would suggest learning a little bit about HTTP requests and how they work. Looking at a tool called Fiddler and going through the examples may be a good place to start understanding what you can do.
