comment What proficiency should a software tester have in SQL?
The title should be changed to better match the question, "software tester" is a very broad term. Consider something like "database software tester".

comment How to avoid duplicated bug reports, described from different user perspective ?
This won't work, by definition words are less likely to repeat when describing something from another point of view.

comment How to avoid duplicated bug reports, described from different user perspective ?
Usually this isn't a real problem, but from time to time a symptom is severe leading to unnecessary extreme reaction, for example a code merge problem caused a show stopper bug days before the dead end for delivering the product. People were urgently called even before someone had the chance to do initial investigation. To answer your question- yes, we add make sure to add an analysis to each bug, and search our database every time anew bug arrives, most of the time the search is virtual since many of the bugs and bug reports are good enough to show the root cause.

comment How would you call on-device unit tests ?
I wrote BIST years ago, and they are a totally different beast... As you said BIST is meant to give PASS/FAIL results for malfunctioning hardware

not diagnostics, those are real unit tests- API tests, boundary values etc.

comment When is it OK not to have dedicated testers/QA team?
There are two problems with that-the first is that most developers lack testing skills and know-how, the second is that real system tests usually requires infrastructure and someone working 100% to maintain it.

comment Should I use “the test fails if” instead of “the test succeeds if”?
Good point- it depends on the tester's state of mind. The main problem we saw with negative expected results is that there are endless possible failures, and writing only some of them can cause the tester to overlook others.

comment How do you adapt agile testing techniques to a regulated industry?
I'm not an expert but have some experience with regulations. some of them requires the presence of documents, and auditors verify the documents actually exists, but not the contents itself or the format (I'm not totally correct here- for example you can use a spreadsheet, test file or mind map but will usually have to add dates and changelogs to all). Even NASA uses iterative methods to some extent and keeps the same quality level.
