What is your question? It's not clear from your writing, you might want to reword it.

comment Need guidance on how to prepare for an SQA interview
Yes, however you'll want make sure you are comfortable explaining the HTSM or at the very least the mnemonics used it in, so if someone asks you can explain why you use them. (Assuming it's an in-person interview)

Can you add some additional details to this question and maybe a link to what tool or service you are asking about?

comment About QA title/Position
@HelpingHands - I've never put a title in an offer or acceptance letter but I have asked the hiring manager what title they intend to use and I often suggest something else. It depends on the company if they will take a suggestion or not. Smaller companies will usually let you decide on your title while bigger companies may have set titles. What do you do in your day job / in practice? What do you want to do more of?

comment About QA title/Position
@FDM Neither did I. I believe you are making a very big exaggeration by saying that everyone in the testing industry intuitively understands these titles. Maybe you think everyone should... because you do? But instead of saying /you think/ they're clear simple and understood, you said or implied everyone does understand them. Make sense?

comment About QA title/Position
@FrederikDeMets I'm not trying to twist your words. I understood you to mean you think everyone who is involved in testing on a day to day, hands-on basis would understand these roles. Is that right? If so, I'm saying I disagree with you.

comment About QA title/Position
@FrederikDeMets I've never met a person who's company follows the ISTQB division of roles. Have you? Saying such roles are understood by everyone is a very big exaggeration. Someone with no experience could easily be a test manager - if that's the position they were hired for. That's not to say said person would be good or bad.

comment About QA title/Position
@HelpingHands You can call yourself whatever you want. If you do a lot of mobile testing, using the term Mobile in your job title might help you down the road to be hired in another or similar position.

comment Where to find Beta-Testers
Do you want people who will beta test your app or are you looking for testers who will test your app in a beta cycle? (The difference being skill level)

comment Purpose of Quality Assurance (QA) testing vs User Acceptance Testing (UAT)?
In general it depends on the skills of the people, the way roles are defined in your organization and the organizations objectives.

Can you can explain why this article might be useful? Besides the similarity in title?

comment Is it a good idea to use a GitHub repo to track test cases?
I do the same thing. This is what GIT was designed for = storing code.

I use Ruby with Selenium. There are lots of free sources for learning Ruby like learncodethehardway.org/ruby, CodeCademy, etc. Also check out the Selenium Bootcamp: saucelabs.com/resources/selenium-bootcamp/chapter-1-get-started

comment Can someone clear-out these job posts for me once and for all?
It's also about creating custom solutions to the custom problems you have. Not every testing problem will be addressable by a vendor tool.

comment What is the process for developing a test plan?
@djangofan What evidence do you have that /most/ people use an ISO standard? Do you have /any/ evidence or observations that even a few people or testers use it?

comment Best documentation to start with before starting Automation
@user6336 I suggest you do the minimum necessary to explain things, only because you run the risk of being detailed in the wrong way / leaving out necessary information. That is of course the inherent problem in heavily scripted text - there's always something missing (it's the curse of knowledge).

comment What is the name of new feature testing in maintenance process?
Sanity testing can also be called smoke testing and is generally done with new features but can also be done with old features that /you/ (as a tester) are new to.

comment What is the name of new feature testing in maintenance process?
I would argue you should /never/ attempt to confirm defects are fixed because its too easy to fall into a confirmation bias and miss important problems. Instead you should try to prove the fixed defects were not fixed and if you can't then state so.

comment what is the relation between test plan, test suite and test case?
Check out this answer explaining what a Test Plan is: sqa.stackexchange.com/a/11723/1455. Are you asking this question in general or referring to a particular type of tool? Different vendors / tools / sources may use terms differently depending on their context and the more you can add to this question the better your answers will be.
