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.

This doesn't answer Guy's question. How will this help him avoid instrumented apps?

One caveat, switching the User-Agent does not reliably render content the same way that using the browser on the device would, or potentially use the same JavaScript engine, and also would typically be a much different screen resolution. These could cause issues ranging from minor layout differences to completely broken functionality. This would be a good way to get you maybe 75% of the way, but you will still need some manual, on device testing.

comment Migrating website content, need to test using Selenium/Python
If the html pages have not changed, and the changes were to CSS files, then you could probably diff the html files to ensure things still exist, but any changes to the style could impact whether the elements are displayed, or displayed correctly and will require some manual checking.

You can execute nunit-console.exe from command line, a quick Google search will give you instructions how to do so.

comment Migrating website content, need to test using Selenium/Python
What exactly is the goal of the testing you want to do? What would you envision the automated test cases to look like that would do some comparison of the old page vs the migrated page? When you say migrating, are you talking about the exact same content, migrated to a new server, or infrastructure? Or are you talking about some other kind of migration where the CSS in the new site has changed and the look and feel are different?

Good answer Kate, only add I have is if you can't change the policy, try to change it anyways. It's clearly not a useful policy. :-)

comment Software Tester Job Interview: Case studies on Test Design
I have always received answers that were better indicators of a person's abilities by asking questions in terms of "Tell me about a time when X happened, how did you respond? What did you learn? What would you do differently?" rather than "What would you do if X happened" Getting them to tell you about an actual occurrence instead of making up a response to a situation will almost always give you better insight into what will happen in similar situations in the future.
