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 Automate Outlook using Selenium Webdriver
Or use an SMTP library to automate it, but Lyndon is probably right, outlook rules would be simplest.

comment Selenium Webdriver - Develop a script to pass a URL to browser in your phone
Webdriver automates web pages, it can't automate excel, or do anything at a mobile OS layer. Can you give more details on what the scenario is? Are you trying to view an excel sheet on a mobile device and click on the link in excel to open a browser? Or am I misunderstanding?

comment Selenium find all elements without a class
Sorry, to be more clear, you are right when it comes to XPath selectors. If you use the find elements by class name function or a CSS selector, it would find any match, not match on the entire string.

comment Selenium find all elements without a class
This is language agnostic. This is how a browser treats a CSS selector, it always works the same way, regardless of which language you are using for Selenium.

comment Selenium find all elements without a class
GKS1 is absolutely right, you have multiple classes separated by spaces. Identifying an element by a class name will find all elements that match, even if they also have additional classes.

comment integration of Selenium Java testNG framework with .net framework
I think you're going to need to provide more details about what you want to do. The way your question stands, it is very much open to interpretation. What exactly do you want to integrate? What are the specific scenarios you want to enable? Why do you need this?

comment How to test Image carousel
Are you looking for ideas on what to test, or you already know what you want to test and need to know how to automate it? If you know specifically what to test, give us the steps and we can help identify how to automate it.

comment Licensing restrictions of formal methods (code proof) tools and contractors
What sort of development environment and programming language are you looking for? Solutions vary depending on which. Typically you would not find contractors that do that, you would either have to license the software yourself, or use free software that you could configure in house, or hire a contractor/consultant to set up for you.

comment How can i automate site access HBase
What exactly do you want to automate? The web site, or directly querying HBase? Can you give more specific examples of how the site works and what scenario you want to automate? HBase provides both a Java API as well as a REST API to query data if you need to query it in automation.

comment Selenium WebDriver how to name each screenshot taken after a test based on the test name
Just so you know, the method was deprecated, but it was de-deprecated in junit 4.11: github.com/junit-team/junit/pull/519. Your solution also works though and technically is probably the more correct solution. Thanks.

comment Proxy setting for JMeter
In your browser with the proxy set up the way you show, are you able to navigate to google.com? Also, you may want to tell Firefox to use the system proxy settings, and change those, that way many other browsers and applications will automatically use those settings.

comment ElementNotVisibleException on Mac, not Windows
A Webdriver defect on one platform and not another is definitely not unheard of. One other possibility is that the web site itself has some forked logic for different browsers. Have you opened up the developer tools on a Mac and made sure that in the DOM, the identifier you are using in your code would still be valid?

comment How to make good impression as a functional tester in front of recruiter/employer
I agree with all of these points. As a hiring manager, number 3 has been one of the most important ones for me. It is an instant no hire when i ask someone a question and they tell me an answer that is clearly incorrect, but act confident about it. I would rather have someone tell me that they don't know something, or aren't sure about something then have them try to pretend like they know.

Does the url you are trying to hit require authentication? Does it prompt for a user/password if you hit it directly within your browser in an incognito window?

comment How to click on Canvas element?
What browser and version of web driver are you using? I have extensively automated a canvas application and using the selenium click method has worked just fine. I did have issues doing more complex actions (like drag and drop) using actionBuilder and had to instead create javascript to create and execute events. I could share that if interested, but it does not answer your question.

comment want to scroll down page/form using selenium webdriver
Are you trying to find a particular element by scrolling, or you just want to arbitrarily scroll down? If you want to scroll in order to view a specific element, you can use the scrollIntoView or scrollTop javascript methods.
