comment Writing automated tests for System.Web.HttpApplication
I wonder if perhaps this would be better suited to stackoverflow as its primarily a programming question, albeit with an application in testing.

comment 1.5 Million lines of code. 0 tests. Where should we start?
+1, Determining which areas are the biggest pain point is a great place to start. However, for someone new to the codebase starting in a "simple" area where the code is less complex and the business rules as simple as can be is a good way to get a "feel" for the application, how its been written and what "unwritten conventions" exist throughoug the code.

comment Is the “Joel Test” appropriate when looking for a QA job?
I've queried the appropriateness of this question (for this site) on meta, meta.sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/16/… - I'd love to get further input =)

comment How do you tell a programmer they're not testing their own code enough?
+1 for your overall answer and also for the first sentence. As a developer who started his professional career in testing I quite firmly believe that anyone who wants to be a developer should spend at least 6 months testing first. It's important to see what the other side of the fence looks like!
