comment How to test embedded software running on a microcontroller?
Most of the traditional tools can be adapted to work with embedded devices using "drivers" or a software layer that communicate with the device. Actually if you use a tool that runs on your desktop you'll always have to implement such a software layer, although some vendors has built in drivers for known interfaces (e.g. Qualisystems) Android has many test environments, some even run on target, but again those that run on a desktop need adaptation.

comment Possible for specific hardware to cause memory leaks?
It might even be a typical path, just running in different timing or constraints.

Not sure what are you looking for- fuzz testing the entire module's API automatically ?

comment Is there open-source software available for summarizing combinatorial test results?
open-source or free ? It's not the same. Do you need the source code of the tool?

comment How should you interview for QA Automation positions?
Your idea is good in general, but it assumes the candidate knows Facebook, or whatever system you are asking about. My experience shows that it is hard to find a common large enough system to ask about similar question.

comment Why testing, by definition, cannot find deadlocks and stack overflows?
Code review might be defined as static testing, but usually developers are responsible for doing it (unless you work at Microsoft where testers participate in code reviews)

Definitely yes, I found more than one bug this way

100% test coverage ? Did you mean code coverage ?

comment Open-source/freeware testing tool for Set-Top Box
Development took about 1 man/year with backed up by aa generous budget (e.g. test equipment) and support teams (e.g. the developing test framework itself). We are developing a related product, not a STB so I can't really answer your questions.

comment Best practices for organising and naming test cases
Every failure AND fully diagnosed ? what about the unknown unknowns, or even the known unknowns ?

comment How to test a location based application
Basically I agree, but this not the software, this is the hardware and physics behind it and you better understand as much as possible of it before your clients get into trouble. There is much more than the few points I brought up, those are only common pitfalls that I learned the hard way while testing a location aware device.

comment How to test a location based application
"can't afford" is a strong term. For some tests you need automated repeatability, for others you can let a human decide depending on the context. You answer assumes that you can emulate and understand every aspect of the underlying GPS hardware

comment Measuring test performance when there is high variance
Also consider extending test duration if possible, this will help average results and lower variance.

this is a recursive answer and not very helpful...

comment When should I do regression testing during each sprint?
I'm missing one thing in you otherwise exceleny answer- when will she run a full set of regression tests ?

comment How would you call backward porting testing?
Again- close, but not exact. The ported feature will be an integral part of the older Kernel

comment Is there a name for this type of vector operation?
Pairwise is a subset of combinatorial, theoretically you can choose triplet of values. To be fair Hexawise sells (or gives for free to 1-5 users or Non-Commercial use) a tool that I heard is as good as PICT

comment Will the new ISO/IEC 29119 Software Testing standard work with agile methodologies like Scrum?
I have a copy too, and the words "agile" and "context" are repeated throughout the standard.
